Exploring memory, childhood and what happens when you can’t quite get to the punch line, Foxtrot deftly weaves three separate narratives together in a multi-layered performance - a joke that Jemima tries to tell at the pub, buried memories from childhood, and snippets from an American pop-culture phenomenon.
Foxtrot delivers an emotional and punchy one woman show using her unique and award-winning style - fusing powerful poetry, song and storytelling. Developed in association with Omnibus Theatre.
“A solo show infusing music and words from Jemima Foxtrot” The Wee Review

“Delightful and expressionistic one-woman show;” Broadway Baby
