About No Fear!

Hilarious, provocative and poignant, No Fear! follows a woman’s progress through decades of radical, political change as she breaks boundaries, defies expectations and continually conquers her fears. Based entirely on events in her real life Linda Marlowe re-enacts her many careers as daring divorcee, raunchy rock-chick, undercover operator, Amazonian adventurer, manic mother and professional free spirit. It is performed through music, mime, monologue and finally trapeze! "No Fear! starts off as how I might be at 100 doing a high-wire act in the circus. Can you imagine a fantasy quite as evocative of bravery and adventure? This show was very much a personal adventure for me. I learnt to do trapeze in a month. I had always wanted to do mime and magic, so I incorporated that. Stand-up found its way in too – all styles of performance that I had longed to try for years but never had the opportunity. I decided to make that opportunity myself. Rather like life itself, the content can be serious but it is always couched in humour. Some people say that solo acting is a lonely profession. I can’t imagine anything much more powerful that being on stage, presenting illusions and images of one’s own life. To retire gracefully or keep on going? I choose the latter.” Linda Marlowe.
