JOSIE LONG: SOMETHING BETTER
This is a show about optimism and hopefulness and about looking for people and things to look up to. It's about wanting more from life than it might be up for giving out. It's about struggling with realising what you are, who you are and what you can't change about yourself, and about really feeling like an outsider for the first time.
I'm 34, I wanted to have kids by now, and be in love, and have a country that didn't vote with the far right parties to march us all off a cliff. And be able to do all the awesome stuff that activists do, that I can't do, too. I thought we would have won by now. And I wanted to be taller and better looking.

The musical based on one of the world’s favourite fairy-tales, Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling. Ugly is born, of course, as a Duckling but is soon becomes clear that he is no ordinary Duck. Mocked on the farmyard, pursued by the ever-hungry Cat, Ugly finds himself lost on a nearby marsh in the middle of a duck-shoot and embarks on an odyssey through the countryside, meeting a battery of colourful characters and finding himself, and love, along the way.
