Jordan and Sara have started a band.
Their posters are everywhere, their first gig is sold out and (annoyingly) neither of them plays an instrument.
Hamel & Hirsch, the UK and NZ poetry slam champions, present a comedy show about imposter syndrome containing almost zero poetry. Two hilarious wordsmiths (self described) invite you to join them just outside their comfort zone, where they ask some pretty big questions such as:
Do we really belong anywhere?
Why are you looking at us like that?
And, most importantly:
If a band plays in a forest and no one is there to hear it...do we still get paid?

Unfortunately this venue is not fully accessible due to a staircase from street level. We absolutely love the venue but are gutted about the accessibility issues. We were up against it to secure a spot and promise you we tried our best.
We want to put on a fully accessible version of the show, so watch this space. If there is anything we can do to make it possible for you to attend despite the accessibility barrier, please let us know. We will do better for future versions of the show.
