Earth To Alice
Alice McCullough’s award-winning performances have captivated audiences as she plays with the boundaries between spoken word, comedy, storytelling and theatre. Her unique way with words has won her a presence on local and international radio with poems commissioned for both TV (BBC The Arts Show, BBC Love In A Day) and radio (BBC Talkback, BBC Arts Extra and U105). Alice has supported talents in comedy, music and poetry including Katherine Ryan, Duke Special, Lemn Sissay, Tony Walsh and Hollie McNish.
But despite her successes, Alice struggles. In this new adaptation of her critically acclaimed show, after a 2-year break from performing that included two admissions to a mental health ward, Alice is more determined than ever to tackle the stigma of mental illness head-on and take to the stage once more. Expect laughter, some tears and a life-affirming kick in the balls in this re-emergence of a talent not to be missed.
"Alice McCullough is radiant when she reads her poems -she is one of the rare gems I've discovered on my gigging circuits across the waters. Her words cover all corners as she quietly stamps down injustice and concocts poetry potions with equal part sadness and joy. Basically, she's bloody great." - Hollie McNish
"A warm and confident slam-winning performer, Alice McCullough is a strong and sensitive voice on the poetry scene in Northern Ireland whose poetry is well-deserving of a wider audience - She's a dead rare red hair Fred Astaire of words." - Tony Walsh
"Wonderful! I especially like the 'Love' poem and the ‘Wonderland’ poem - delightfully good." - Simon Callow
"Great show - fragile but in control, real, and in the moment." - Kevin McAleer
"Beautiful, profound and funny - stunning new work from an exceptionally talented woman." - Ursula Burns
"Powerful and inspiring" - Duke Special
"A great talent for making poetry appear as a stream of consciousness but which is actually hugely well crafted." - Sean Kelly, Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival
