The show

In a moment when everyone seems to be penning a memoir, and Facebook and Twitter encourage the minutae of people's lives to enter the ether, why shouldn't I, also, be famous?

Patchwork is a fast and funny mega-monologue about ambition, workaholism and wasps, set to a throbbing soundtrack and animated by an epic slide show of riotous drawings.

Part live spoken word gig, part daring confession, this adrenaline-fuelled multimedia performance is the autobiography of a girl holed up in the attic, so industriously drawing that she is oblivious to the world downstairs: the derelict flat, the heavy-duty DIY, and the three-dimensional love that's waiting for her.

Her words will draw you in, shake you up, and spit you out feeling a lot happier about the fact you may never be a rock star.
