Written and performed by Martin Figura
When the poet and photographer Martin Figura was nine years old, his father murdered his mother. This shocking event is at the heart of his powerful one-man show ‘Whistle’, but it is by no means the whole story.
Set against a backdrop of family photographs, letters and documents, Whistle’ is a tour de force of poetry in performance. Martin Figura eloquently transcends the tragic details to deliver a coming of age story that is funny, moving and uplifting in equal measure.
“Profoundly honest and at the same time joyfully entertaining” Independent on Sunday
“Martin Figura's riveting sequence of poems about his childhood, his father killing his mother, and the consequences of that upon the whole family is remarkable” Jackie Kay
