Let Me Count the Ways is a spoken word show about intimacy, boundaries and healing. It looks at how love – of others and of self – can help us face the difficult, complicated mess of life. Featuring sapphic witches getting day drunk in summer and queer femmes swapping highlighters, this show – written and performed by Maz Hedgehog and directed by Faye Draper – moves between rage and joy, sorrow and peace to ask: How do I love me? Let me count the ways.
Maz Hedgehog is a poet and performer based in Manchester. She’s worked with organisations like Penguin and Blue Peter and performed at events from Edinburgh to Brighton. Fond of fairies and theatrics, Maz’s work is imaginative, lyrical and occasionally a little surreal.
