I’m Sorry I Haven’t Haiku?
It’s comedy and culture dragged through a dictionary backwards.
And it’s short.
‘Haiku’ debuted at Theatre Delicatessen’s marvellous space at the Marylebone Gardens in August 2012 with exceptional performances from team captains A.F. Harrold and Tim Wells. Anarchic team members Ashna Sarkar, Sophie Evans, Jules Munn and Lewis Buxton debated challenging topics with great aplomb and much seat swapping – all adjudicated ably by Eric Gregory award winner, the lovely Swithun Cooper .
After a heated debate on the topics of Margaret Thatcher, Korea and Hen Party Bus Crash at the Dalston Curve Garden at Land of Kings Festival in May, pitting the ever brilliant Tim Wells and Sally Jenkinson against UK National Slam Champion Adam Kammerling and comedic haiku master, James Bran, I’m Sorry I Haven’t Haiku headed up north to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for a sell-out show at the ever-haunted, ever-home to spoken word Niddry Street coven, the Banshee Labyrinth.
We’ve just come to the end of a 3 show run at the very lovely Colonel Fawcett pub in Camden. It’s been very exciting, there’s been a lot of shouting, many an impassioned debate, interpretive dancing, Justice and the New Young Pony Club on the soundtrack, team-swapping, judge-baiting and some very, very good haiku.
‘Haiku’ will be back in an exciting new venue in the new year with a thrilling new website all of its own – here.
