Catherine, you’re on fire tonight!
A CALL to be brave in a time when we are urged to be fearful will be heard at South Street Arts Centre next week.
Catherine Ireton’s For All The Fires Not Yet Lit tells the story of Claire Lyons, and her quest to find her brave bone.
Her fiancé doesn’t think she should make a speech at the wedding reception, neither does her mother. And yesterday, she stayed swimming in the slow lane, despite her legs wanting to push her faster.
And so it is that a morning outing to get a coffee turns into a quest for Claire to find her bravery, surprising herself and others.
Over the next 24 hours Claire goes on a protest, makes friends with a shoplifter, ends up in a prison cell and wakes with a very different view of what is and isn’t possible.
Interwoven with small, tender and mighty stories of everyday bravery, For All The Fires Not Yet Lit is a call to those who need that extra push to be brave in order to get what they really, truly want out of life.
Because courage, like fear, can be contagious.
For All The Fires Not Yet Lit is a new solo performance written and performed by Catherine Ireton using found sounds, electronic samples, storytelling and song.
For All The Fires Not Yet Lit comes to South Street Arts Centre on Thursday, October 19 at 8pm. Tickets are £12.50 with concession available. To book visit www.readingarts.com/ south-street or call the Box Office on 0118 960 6060.
