Earth calling Lois - do you copy?

Despite what the radio silence of late may suggest, I can assure you that I did indeed make it back from the Edinburgh Fringe in one piece at the end of August - never you fear. I had a very good, useful trip up there with me and my alter ego, meeting a whole host of lovely talented people and doing some storming gigs, performing for the Bongo Club Cabaret, Sideshow, Bob Slayer's 'You Bastard' and Carnival des Phenomenes. Thanks to all who made it such a marvellous 2 mini trips.

Now, back at grindstone central, things are bubbling away nicely. I've had a good few of gigs as Ms of the Lane - 3 back in September: Electric Mouse Comedy's one off re-creation of Bob Slayer's Edinburgh show at The Paradise; my second private gig and thirdly the Red Velvet Curtain Cult's 'Lust and Luxuria' night at Whitechapel Art Gallery where I premiered a new stoopid act, plus a gig in October at Resistance Gallery's 'Anti Frieze' party. I'm back at the latter this weekend to perform as part of Lucha Britannia's Winter Weekender:

Aside from cabaret bits, my little one woman black comedy GLITCH is to be making an exciting re-appearance early next year. I'll be performing it at the British Library's Taking Liberties exhibition, Tuesdays and Saturdays from mid January to mid February:

Tuesdays 20, 27 Jan and 3, 10 Feb
at 17:30 and 19:00

Saturdays 24, 31 Jan and 7, 14 Feb
at 13:00, 14:30 and 16:00

Here's the latest version of the blurb:
A 30-minute black comedy performance set in an imaginary near future. A lone traveller finds herself trapped during an automated security check. Rather than succumb to the totalitarian surveillance, she attempts to outwit the machine and make a bid for freedom.
There really is some great stuff going on as part of this exhibition so I'm over the moon to be involved in it!

Now onto the grand plan mentioned in the last post... Well, not much in the way of juicy tidbits for you just yet, but to whet your whistle, I'm in the very early stages of developing a Feature Film. It's going to be a slightly surreal character comedy involving many of the bright and talented sparks that I know. Very excited. Updates will be posted here.

Can't wait to get properly stuck in...
