Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is taking her brand new show ONLINE after a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby and so on.

The multiple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee returns to the road after five years. A new show about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood; kindness, gentleness and joy; optimism for the future. Also, some silly voices.

It’s about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy – all in all, the edgiest thing you will see this year. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that is a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices in it, and that’s not nothing.

This event has been rescheduled from June 2020 and will now take place online. 
If you are a ticket holder for the previously advertised event in the theatre, a member of our ticketing team will be in touch shortly.  Alternatively, please email

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
