Join Mark Gwynne Jones & Psychicbread – with poems and songs of the big bang, floating sheep, a meeting with the Devil, and a girl called Amaryllis, PsychicBread are set to delight audiences with an all new show. Winners of 4 festival fringe awards, their performance is by turns dramatic, funny and sometimes startlingly sensitive.
‘Billed as Spoken Word, this underplays the complexity of Mark’s unique genre. His stories are imaginatively enhanced by an evocative sound-track created by the music, percussion, and vocals of PsychicBread and the effect is spell-binding. Overall, this is a very rewarding, exotic experience, not to be missed.’ Sarah Jones (Oxford Fringe)
‘My problem now is to review a performance that is quite indescribable in a way that can convey the fun, ferocity and flight of fancy that was Mark Gwynne Jones and PsychicBread. …the evening swung the audience round in dizzying circles that made you laugh, pause for thought then laugh again. You never quite knew what was coming next, what was true story or fantasy… and what sound would emerge from PsychicBread’s next configuration of instruments to explode over the audience like wild and exciting fireworks.’ Caroline Frith
‘I’ll be the first to concede that this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. It wasn’t mine, to start with. But by the end of the evening I was absorbed completely and could quite happily have listened for several more hours. So I guess it is my sort of thing, and I can’t imagine I’m going to see it done any better.’ Nick Butterley (Buxton Fringe)
