Time To Shine

Lost in Spaces

Hastings-based Penny Pepper – performer, singer and political activist on behalf of disabled people – has recently aired her latest show, Lost in Spaces. Witty, gritty and subversive, the performance charts her life to date. Based on the journals she has kept so meticulously since childhood, the spoken word blends seamlessly with poetry and music, while photos provide a visual narrative. Cathy Simpson was lucky enough to attend the première at the Soho Theatre, London.
