Rob Auton: The Talk Show (work in progress)

This is a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about talking by award winning writer and performer Rob Auton. Following on from his shows about hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, Rob now turns his attention to talking because he is ready to talk about talking.

“A genuine original. Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot.”(The Guardian)
“Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch.” (The Independent)
“He is entirely compelling to watch. He’s a poet/writer/talker and it’s funny in parts but that’s not the point – there is something else happening, I’m not entirely sure what it is but it’s great and it wallops you in the belly.” (Daniel Kitson)
“Just Sad.” (Vanessa Feltz)
“Weirdly moving in ways I still can’t quite define. I haven’t seen anything else quite like it, or him.” (The Stage)
