Sophia Walker to Appear at SJT With Debut Solo Show 'Around The World In Eight Mistakes'

Sophia Walker

The 2013 BBC Poetry Slam Champion Sophia Walker appears at the Stephen Joseph Theatre next month with her debut solo show, Around The World In Eight Mistakes.

Sophia 's show scooped the title for Best Spoken Word Show on the 2013 Edinburgh Free Fringe and last year was voted the Best UK Spoken Word Show.

Illegal immigration, illegal emigration, ridiculous amounts of deportation, an accidental stint in a war zone and moving for love. Twice. All the reasons never to move! Sophia's earliest memory is that of sitting on her father's shoulders as the Berlin Wall was being torn down. Leapfrogging around the world, travel to Moscow back in the USSR days, the USA, Uganda and other places along the way.

After the interval Sophia will also perform a spoken word set.

Winner of the 2012 London Poetry Olympics, Edinburgh International Book Festival Slam, a former Scottish Slam Champion and the UK representative for the World Queer Slam, Sophia has performed everywhere from The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC to the European Parliament.

Her work has aired on BBC Radio 4, NPR (USA), France Inter as well as radio stations in Italy, Singapore, India and Vietnam. She was also nominated to The Independent's Pink List of 100 Most Influential LGBT people in the UK.

Around The World In Eight Mistakes is directed by Matt Panesh who will also perform at the venue later in the season on 14 April with his award-winning 2013 Edinburgh Fringe show 300 to 1 which was developed and rehearsed at the Scarborough theatre.

Sophia Walker can be seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre on Saturday 14 March at 7.45pm. Tickets, priced from £10 to £15, are available from Box Office on 01723 370541 and online at Under 30s’ tickets at £6 are available in person from the Box Office on proof of ID. Recommended for ages 14+.
