From Nana Funk, the great-great-grandmother of good times, comes a heartfelt musical journey of exploration, inspired by real life events and stories.
Tough Old Bird explores how women are viewed in society as they have the absolute gall to get older! Have you ever noticed those adverts promising to ‘defy the effects of ageing’? Ooh Nana hates them. What about when we get old? Where’s the instruction manual? Who deems what is ‘acceptable behaviour’? What happens when your voice isn’t listened to, or you become slowly invisible?
After a sold out tour of the North West in 2022, we're taking the show back on the road and heading to Warrington, Leeds, Scarborough and beyond (possibly). Kicking off with a show on home turf, The Unity Theatre, Liverpool, 20th January 2024.
The current funding climate is incredibly difficult for independent artists and after two unsuccessful Arts Council bids we've decided we're going to do it anyway! Touring a show to this scale, and making sure everyone is paid properly, doesn't come cheap so we need some support covering our costs. In return for your generous donation Nana Funk can offer the following:
Up to £10 - A big Thank You on Nana Funks Webpage.
£10-£24 - A signed picture from Nana and Val.
£25 to £99 - A signed picture and a filmed Thank You from Nana herself.
£100 or more - A signed picture and Nana Funk will write a personal song just for you!
Many thanks for your support.
