Praise for Jemima Foxtrot
“The brilliant Foxtrot is the one to watch”
“Jemima Foxtrot is the best thing to happen to spoken word in years.”
“The text, by Jemima Foxtrot, is fragmentary, and lit by a glimmering desperation…with flashes of Beckett in its tragicomic bleakness”
The Guardian on Bad Faith
“A glittering show, a gem in every sense, a shining thing”
The Stage on Melody
“Her writing is full of lines that gleam like the pink parts of a seashell”
The Stage on Above the Mealy-Mouthed Sea
“Jemima Foxtrot is a revelation…Her poetry is sharp and intelligent, delivered with confident, dramatic timing, and interspersed with song”
Write Out Loud
“Eloquent, warm, beautiful and tough. Astonishing”
