At the Drop of a Hat

A poem collaboration with Annabel Wilson, Laura Williamson and everyone in the audience.

Audience members are encouraged to write a single word on a piece of paper and put it in the hat. Once all the words are collected, the words are drawn from the hat one by one, and we respond with a poem from Laura’s alphabeticised catalogue, Annabel’s brilliance or Liz’s head. Anything can happen and usually does.
