Lullabies and Cupcakes
Just want some awesome spoken word shows?
Hammer and Tongue presents the Edinburgh preview shows of its hosts - Lucy Ayrton and Tina Sederholm. THAT'S RIGHT - two spoken word shows for the price of one! How we spoil you...
Lullabies to Make Your Children Cry
Women in fairy tales are rubbish. Always napping or sweeping. But they didn't used to be. They used to seduce men and slay dragons, cast spells and trick trolls into returning their babies. Fairy tales of yore celebrated women. Their textual fabric oozed feminine power and grace. So what happened? Are women just less good than they used to be, or did something else change? Poet and songstress Lucy Ayrton wants to know. Join her as she unravels the dark, beautiful fairy tales of our past, and spins some of her own.
Evie and the Perfect Cupcake
In Evie’s world the state looks after your well-being by controlling calorific intake. If being thin equals success and happiness, can Evie resist the perfect cupcake? Join Tina Sederholm on a journey to discover if you really can have your cake and eat it.
