Free Lunch with the StenchWench

A humiliating scrap with growing up skint in flat broke Britain: Free Lunch with the StenchWench is a rallying cry for times of brutal cuts and disparity, a solo account of shame and poverty from a personal perspective.


Charting the drive for survival and fitting in, the StenchWench shares stories of an itinerant life with seven siblings in the 70s and 80s whilst precariously existing in Austerity Britain today. Cheap clothes, fleas, cold baths, and crap jobs are unleashed as she natters and sings about how to get by, attempts to overcome the shame of ‘lack’ and celebrates our spirit of community and resistance.

Expect a one-woman flea circus with faded glory, austerity pants, drop scones and hot chocolate.
