Venus, the Roman Goddess of love and beauty, has washed up on British shores in time to witness the frenzy and aftermath of the 2017 snap general election.

Through the filters of an immigration officer, the red top papers and the general public, Venus experiences what it means to be a 21st Century immigrant woman at a time of social, political and cultural upheaval.

Writer/performer Lydia Towsey’s theatrical poetry show is one of landscapes, journeys and the tales of 21st Century women in our tumultuous times.

“Absolutely spectacular” – Jo Ivie, Poet in the City

“Lydia Townsey’s poetry bubbles with wry observations and quick-witted delights that are genuine and loaded with charm” – Jane Commance, Nine Arches Press
