Roann tells all of her English father turned Tantric Masseur, her Muslim mother who insists on open dialogue; and how she has been caught in the middle since the age of six.
In this journey of self-discovery, Roann McCloskey takes on sex, sexuality and power, as she shares navigating her life as a queer, British-Algerian woman that will have you laughing, crying and pondering the name you’ve given your genitals.
Finding The mythic in the mundane!
These Folk is an improvised, mythical, musical, folk tale brought to you by veteran improvisers (as seen in Showstopper! The Improvised Musical) Justin Brett and Susan Harrison.
Inspired by audience suggestions and accompanied by the very best improvisational musicians, they weave a folk tale as old as time and as new as the moment it was created in.
"These Folk is that rare combo of beautiful and funny. I laughed, I cried, and I walked away completely inspired"

Sinatra to Superman.

Bob talking a lot with the odd prop!
Katie is a stupid idiot who likes to prance around, often with props, costumes, and musical instruments.
She has also run 3 London Marathons and got addicted to them and had to quit doing any more, which she feels is important to note.
