A Woman of Uncertain Age


This one woman show follows Ruth, a late 40’s single mother, on her train journey to introduce her baby daughter Eve, to her grown-up son. Ruth’s conversations with her infant daughter, her fellow passengers and, her inner thoughts are quite often at odds with her outer utterances.
Ruth’s journey is definitely a mixture of “lost and found”. she feels like a yesterday’s newspaper that has been left behind on a train station bench.
On her journey Ruth pours out her heart to one sympathetic listener after another. We learn how Eve’s father has left: ” No. He didn’t die!!! …he just Buggered Off!!”
But men are definitely still on her mind. In fact, she can’t stop thinking about them “…does anyone else find charcuterie incredibly suggestive?”
After a series of mishaps and adventures she arrives at the terminus realising that, sometimes, even trains can go around in circles.

James Riley 

+ Hickory Signals


Last November, London-born singer-songwriter James Riley lost a coin-toss in a greasy spoon café in Deptford and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Though relocating to the home of country music on a whim might seem a brash move, it was one that this 27-year old yarn-spinner, experimental blender of bluegrass & soul had secretly hoped he’d make ever since he first heard the sound of Hank Williams crooning through his parent’s 8-track.
James has always travelled far and wide in search of new sounds and inspiration, once even hitchhiking and busking his way to Istanbul with only an acoustic guitar. He has played hundreds of gigs to audiences across the UK and beyond, honing a knack for candid delivery of disarmingly beautiful songs about cities, lovers and moments in life aligned. With only a parlour acoustic guitar and his voice James channels a heady blend of bluegrass, Bill Withers-inspired soul, and high-energy, pulsing acoustica, infused with early Springsteen-like jubilance.
After acclimatising life in Tennessee, James is returning home this summer for a string of nineteen dates around the UK, showcasing brand new tracks to be released as part of a Pledge Music campaign. The tour will include a headline date at London’s St. Pancras Old Church on July 3rd before he heads back to the States to finish his album and continue pursuing new songs and new stories.
