The autumn / winter tour of Zones of Avoidance ended with a celebrated performance to a packed house at The Cellars in Eastney, Portsmouth, on Weds 22 January. Here’s feedback from a member of the audience.
“It hit me in the heart and made me cry. I think that Maggie Sawkins has achieved something here that demonstrates her prowess and ability as someone that can take the grueling realities of addiction and mental health illness and make that into art of the highest calibre. Her poetry and performance are disturbing, beautiful and poignant all at once. We go from the dingy, grim room of a bedsit to the shingle of Southsea and then float up to the stars in the night sky and it all feels perfectly right.” (Anna Barzotti – writer)
