Presented by Victoria Firth

How do you find a new ‘once upon a time’ after the ‘happy ever after’ never turned up? Victoria is on a quest to discover how you make a new life when you can’t have the one you imagined. In this big-hearted, big thinking show of storytelling and physical comedy our heroine’s mid-life search for joy, identity and belonging features public displays of playfulness, private truths, and sheer bloody-mindedness.

Join Victoria as she asks: is it possible to be happy without kids?

“Firth is clearly a great comic actress; using movement, language, word cards and voice to tell her story that had me and many other audience members crying with laughter… An unforgettable experience.” – Number 9 Reviews

About the company

My name is Victoria and I’m a performer, theatre-maker and director from Yorkshire. I think theatre should be joyful and full of heart. I am interested in exploring empathy, embodiment and connection–mainly getting under the skin of things that lots of us feel but no-one talks about. I make performance in lots of forms: storytelling, theatre, comedy and live art. Almost always my shows are physical, playful and a bit perilous. Sometimes my performances have words. Sometimes not. Sometimes movement and images do what words might. Theatre is a place I feel at home and I’d love to share it with you. | Twitter: @msvhf
