Cather­ine, you’re on fire tonight!

The Wokingham Paper - - LEISURE -

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.
