Aussie-born singer-songwriter-performance poet Flloyd (with 2 Ells) Kennedy may be pushing into her eighth decade but this old lady certainly knows a thing or two. With two ukuleles and a kazoo, her collection of amusing songs and poems draws on her avalanche of memories from a life uproariously lived and wryly observed, taking comic stabs at the world around her which, quite frankly, seems to have lost the plot.

No subject is too random. Pot plants, the apocalypse, Facebook, a paeon to Liverpool’s weather: there’s little that Flloyd’s gentle clown can’t set to poetry or music, her witty ramblings borne from the benefit of hindsight as she now limps down the other side of life’s hill.

Prepare for an eclectic show that’s authentic, funny and shoots straight from the heart. And if you don’t believe us, here’s what recent audiences thought:

"Congratulations, Flloyd, such a fine variety of voices packed into one hour of pure entertainment!"

"U know when you've been 'uked' - straight to the quick and straight from the heart - incisive, heartfelt, and tingly fun."

“It made me both laugh and cry and was very honest too.”

Audience response:
“loved the ballsy hiphop” “infectious!” “enjoyed unpacking of the sonnets” “a wonderful journey” “she is just a great performer”

“Would highly recommend “Yes! Because…” to anyone with a love of music, Shakespeare or the brutal honesty of life in general."

“Congratulations, Flloyd on your great show in Edinburgh. Such a fine variety of voices packed into one hour of pure entertainment! “

“U know when you’ve been ‘uked’ – straight to the quick and straight from the heart – incisive, heartfelt, and tingly fun.”

The Fall of June Bloom (or What You Will)
Brisbane – 2010 “This was for me, one of the most engaging and rewarding pieces of theatre I have seen for a very long time. I found it startlingly and brilliantly unsafe. A pretend lecture on Shakespeare became an edge of your seat experience… This is not a performance. This is not a lecture. This is now… What Flloyd has captured is the importance of that all-pervading, all-powerful question that (at least for me) all great theatre is based on – ‘What Happens Next’?” Matthew Ryan (Brisbane)
“Just seen the extraordinary, subtle, arresting and amazing production of ‘The Fall of June Bloom’. For anyone who loves theatre, words and Shakespeare, it’s a must!” Heather Jones (Brisbane)
New York – 2009: “I want to thank you again for your performance — both the text and the acting. It was thoroughly engaging, thought provoking, fascinating and charming. Entertaining without being didactic, it wrestled with the complex concepts of the power of language.”
