Molly Naylor performing ‘Stop Trying to be Fantastic’

One day, a magpie comes into a little girl’s house by mistake. It decides it likes her. She spends the next twenty-five years trying to get away from it. ‘Stop Trying to be Fantastic’ is a story about suffering, adventure, saviour-complex, acceptance, and a magpie who refuses to quit.

From award-winning writer/performer Molly Naylor (Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You, Sky One’s After Hours) comes this lyrical and funny spoken word show that explores what we owe to each other and what we owe to ourselves.

It’s an anti-self-help show… that might actually help.
