27th April – Falmouth – Telltales Presents: ‘Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think of You’

‘I loved WHENEVER I GET BLOWN UP I THINK OF YOU. It’s funny, lyrical, and sad, and above all it does what all the best writing does – makes you tilt your head to one side and look at the world in a slightly different way.’

Jonathan Coe

‘The writing is urgent, edgy, the poetry of young urban Britain’ 

The Independent

How does it feel to have your world blown apart? Britain is booming and Molly moves to London from deepest Cornwall full of naive dreams, high hopes and on a quest to make her life just like the movies. Then on 7/7/2005, she finds herself on a tube blown up by terrorists and her life is forced to take a different direction. Funny, frank and poetic; this is the true story of what happened next and how we put things back together after they’ve been blown apart.

Molly Naylor will be supported by  Nick Jarvis, who will be taking to the stage to begin the evening with a lively selection of “sharp, smart and insightful poems.”

Tickets are just £8/ £6 concessions and are available from The Poly website, box office, or by calling 01326 319461.
