Earth to Alice with Alice McCullough
12 May at 7.30pm
Seamus Heaney Homeplace
Once described by poet Tony Walsh as “a Fred Astaire of words,” Alice McCullough’s unconventional poetry performances have captivated audiences ever since she made her start performing Alice Fresco on the streets of Belfast. Fans of her work include Stephen Fry who described her as ‘a sensational new voice’ and Naomi Shihab Nye, who described her as ‘a true original’.
Her critically acclaimed one-woman show Earth to Alice is a candid collection of songs and poems that takes her audience on a walk through Belfast, to Wonderland and back as she shares insights into her lived experience of bipolar disorder.
A TV adaptation of Earth to Alice was commissioned by BBC in 2021 as part of their ‘Culture in Quarantine’ series and Alice has been shortlisted for the Saboteur Best Spoken Word Show, The Neurodiversity Representation Award and the Birds of Paradise Exceptional Theatre Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022.
