Hegley In Hammersmith - T1212094306

'By the time I get to do these shows, I'll (hopefully) have done a twenty-odd date tour (after my Edinburgh Festival stint) during which time I'll be tightening things up and trying things out and attempting to write sentences with less use of brackets. The show I bring to the Lyric will be informed by the tour. I may encourage you to draw a dog, like I did last year, or a facecloth, like I didn't. There will be bits about my travels and my boyhood, e.g. once I asked my mum if she would shelter me if I killed someone. She said that she would, but wouldn't be very pleased about it. And there will be stories about bamboo. I may bring a friend and so may you.Performer John Hegley.
