Lullabies to Make Your Children Cry by Lucy Ayrton
Lucy writes performance story-poetry, lives in Oxford and works in PR. None of these things were planned. She runs poetry slams and a feminist drinking club. Last summer she performed her debut poetry show, Lullabies to Make Your Children Cry, at the Edinburgh Festival (“Brilliantly subversive” - The Scotsman, ***** - Sabotage Reviews). Once she had a cocktail that contained both tea and gin. She’s not sure she’ll ever be as happy as that again.
Reviews for Lullabies to Make Your Children Cry:

Talking to Strangers
The Nightingale
