Jaybird Live Literature presents

What Days We’re Having Now

A new poetry show featuring Alex MacDonald, Ella Frears and Will Harris

When you’re on an adventure, you need a map

Take one last look at your teenage bedroom - its floordrobe and cereal bowls, the photos on the wall – then head out into the world.

What Days We’re Having Now is a live anthology of subtly theatricalised poems. Images scroll by like an Instagram feed: a flower pressed in a book, a cartoon frog, a stack of nachos cooked by a TV chef.

Through performed poems touching on identity, uncertainty, the meaning of family and the nature of love, Alex, Ella and Will talk to us. They lead us away from home and help us find our way back. Navigate your lives with their poems.


Jaybird Live Literature was founded in 2006 as a production company that works with established poets to produce subtly theatricalised live literature performances of existing and newly commissioned writing. More details at www.jaybird.org.uk
