You Are Here (2010)

How we described it ...

'Three poets on stage. Talking to each other – and to you, the audience – through their poems.

You Are Here is a hand-picked selection of poems by Colette Bryce, Daljit Nagra and Jo Shapcott. Here are poems in the form of introductions, anecdotes, confessions and resolutions ... and all of them playing with ideas about autobiography, disguise and identity.

Who are you? Where are you and where are you going? Poems to pose the questions and whisper you the answers.'
