Miscellaneous subjects that crossed my mind while listening to a lecture about Chuck Jones’s Hunting Trilogy (1951-53)
(which was nevertheless really good).
Ben is sitting in a lecture about a series of Chuck Jones cartoons, but his thoughts drift off in various directions.
There's his friendship with the person he came with, the T-shirts he has at home, his favourite words, his favourite books, and the schism on London’s high streets between the conflicting denominations of launderettes and laundrettes.
And all the while, the lecturer is following her own sweet way, exploring new meanings in the films, quoting obscure academics and offering a different way of looking at the world.
Are any of us following the script?
Aren’t we all in some kind of pronoun trouble?
Using Powerpoint and stand-up, Pronoun Trouble combines a fact-adjacent lecture about three extraordinary cartoons and a whole ton of other topics that sometimes come to mind.
It was first performed at The Idler Academy at the Port Eliot Festival in July 2017.
And it had a one-off London date at The Hen and Chickens Theatre Bar on 4th October 2017.
Contact me if you'd like to book a performance of the 'lecture'.
I plan on performing the piece in 2018 at Trouble At Mill in Farsley, West Yorkshire, and other locations.
