TOUGH OLD BIRD - A ONE NANA SHOW
Tough Old Bird is a One Nana Show on a subject that is close to Nana Funk’s heart......on ageing and how are society perceives us as we get old.
Inspired by Nana’s very close friend Pat Waller who passed away shortly after her 80th birthday, the show combines song, improvisation and getting very angry with adverts telling us to "look young" to challenge modern culture of being told that we're too old to be seen! Why? Because we're worth it!
Tough Old Bird has been performed as part of a Research & Development show at Unity Theatre, Liverpool to an invited audience in association with the amazing Paperwork Theatre. This was only made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and The Awesome Foundation, Liverpool. I am currently on the funding path to continue the Tough Old Bird journey. If you would like to add to that...please get in touch! I'll write a song for you!
The amazing cross stitch wall hanging was commissioned by The Little Bitch Cross Stitch based in Birkenhead.
"For a start, I'm invisible. Well, I'm old, which is another word for invisible. I'm a stealth codger. See, when you get around 35 years old, you start to develop patches of invisibility. By the time you're around 65 you're more or less transparent. And now I'm so bloody old nobody ever sees us." Alexei Sayle - The Minister of Death
