A rollicking night of cabaret storytelling about post natal depression in York – via Armley


Leeds-based Chloe Bezer will be performing at a festival with a difference in York next month.

Produced by Little Mighty Theatre Company in Armley, her performance is entitled ‘The Slow Songs Make Me Sad’ and will form part of the TakeOver Festival at the York Theatre Royal, in collaboration with York St John University.

The festival is running from the 9-14 May 2022 and is themed around the unspoken, combining local and personal stories with an exploration of the wider world through a compelling combination of theatre memory and art. More information can be found here.

Chloe first started writing a show ten years ago. It featured a clown, songs, and something about a grand piano.

But then she had children and life got in the way, so that show never quite made it through. Now she’s a decade older, Chloe has decided she is going to make her comeback and finish it off. A festival spokesperson said:

“This is her chance to make a mark. To deal with the Big Stuff. To leave an inheritance for when she’s gone.

“With a cheeky glint in its eye and a steely determination to talk about all the things you’re meant to keep quiet, The Slow Songs Make Me Sad blends together hilarious clowning, heartfelt storytelling and raucous cello songs.”

Tickets can be booked here.

Little Mighty Theatre Company is based at Interplay Theatre, off Armley Ridge Road. It collaborates with other companies and individual makers who create new work driven by big ideas. All of its artist relationships are hand-picked.
