Thursday 22nd September 7.45pm / Studio Hub


Let Me Count the Ways is a spoken word solo show which draws on speculative and realist storytelling to explore love, care and intimacy. It speaks directly to the experiences of other Black queer women, at how self perception is shaped and changed by the communities we find ourselves within/without.

Initially inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43Let Me Count the Ways was written as a way of exploring how we are shaped by our interpersonal relationships. In this way, this is a solo show about isolation and connection, about intimacy and indifference. Set in a messy bedroom, the show is also about mental health and how relationships can both harm and heal, help and hinder a recovery.

Produced by HER Productions & Ink and Curtain
