Kate Fox: Bigger on the Inside

3 Jul 2024

19:00 - 20:30

The Alhambra Theatre

Join stand-up poet, author and Radio 4 regular, Kate Fox, in a special performance of the poetry collection, Bigger on the Inside, set to launch at Bradford Literature Festival.

Previously a sellout show, her new book explores neurodiversity through the lens of Doctor Who, as a neuroqueer imaginary of Timelords, psychologists, octopuses, sparkly things and mushrooms. Fox leads us on travels through time and space in search of solutions to the Double Empathy Problem, encountering monotropists, labels, stigmas and people with differently wired brains.

A poetic exploration of neurodiversity, where terms like Autism and ADHD can be bestowed, refused, fought for, resisted, queered or overturned. As the Doctor once said, ‘a straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting’.

You don’t have to be neurodivergent or a Whovian to enjoy Fox's trademark mixture of funny, thoughtful stand-up poetry, but if you are, then you might find this as exciting as she finds octopuses, dungarees with dogs on and sea swimming.
