Kate Fox: Bigger on the Inside
17:20 Sun 27 Sep 2020 Barrow

Poet and comedian Kate Fox once thought receiving a positive diagnosis for autism had as much a chance of happening as a female Doctor Who. As such, since the Doctor’s 13th incarnation (played by Jodie Whittaker) in 2018, Fox’s life has changed quite a bit.

This funny and smart work-in-progress show looks at autism and neurodiversity through the theme of Doctor Who, as Fox takes us through the ways the iconic sci-fi show has shaped her view of the world. Fox is a stand-up poet and broadcaster, a regular voice on Radio 4 and a “gentle activist” and campaigner for the voices of Northerners, the working class, women and the neurodiverse to be heard.

Bigger on the Inside will also be time-travelling to the Lunesdale Hall in Kirkby Lonsdale on Saturday, September 26, 7.30pm for a socially-distanced showing as part of the Kirkby Lonsdale Poetry Festival.

Supported by BBC Contains Strong Language and the Christopher Robins Charitable Trust.

Presented as part of a triple bill at Contains Strong Language, along with Luke Wright - On Barrow (16:30), and Luke Wright & Cobbler - Better Off (18.20).
