Is it just me?

House of Figs presents:

Is it just me? The Awkward Guide to Friendship

  • Does the cat get your tongue when you’re meeting new people?
  • Are your words growing steadily weirder and wilder?
  • Have you ever been likened to a lemon?
  • Then climb aboard…

House of Figs bring you their work-in-progress show celebrating all the shapes of friendship, from perfectly platonic meet cutes to courageous conversations… and beyond.

Join poet Beth Calverley and musician Beth Roberts on a voyage through deep friendship feelings, safely afloat in an otherworldly choir of spoken and sung voices.

Is it just me? The Awkward Guide to Friendship intersperses the duo’s own weird and wonderful experiences with recordings of other people talking about talking to people. 

Along the way, they invite their new friends to help inspire a live-improvised voicescape and join in with collective singing – though silence is equally celebrated!
