About Am I Old Yet?

"Am I Old Yet?" is a mini comic radio soap opera (without the soap) written, performed by Flloyd Kennedy, produced by Thunder's Mouth Theatre.
It consists of  weekly 10 minute dramatisations in the life of Helen Docherty, well into her 70s, living on her own in a London flat, except when her family decide to invade her space “to look after her”, or because they want her to fix them. Helen is determined to claim her space as ‘elder’, ‘senior’, ‘crone’ with dignity, honesty and joy. Although the dignity part is proving the most difficult…

Here are some reviews

PODCAST THE NEWSLETTER
🎙️Flloyd Kennedy, an Australian-born, Liverpool based poet, performer, voice and acting coach in her late 70s, has created the comic-audio-drama Am I Old Yet?, a series of self-contained vignettes in which a character named Helen, who is also in her late 70s, adjusts to the reality of ageing with dignity, honesty and joy. Helen engages in conversation with members of her family and friends in a way that makes you feel along for the ride, invited to hear a perspective that is often overlooked in podcasting. What do I keep saying about poets being the best podcasters, you guys? These are beautiful pieces that deal with deep and intimate thoughts we’ll all be confronting sooner or later. https://podcastthenewsletter.substack.com/p/lizzy...

<h5> ★★★★★
A lovely listen</h5>Straight and direct about the 'joys' of getting older. A really enjoyable listen.

★★★★★

Just what is old?

You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “ Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”
Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable.

Clever tales in a unique woman’s voice

Flloyd’s mini-dramas are refreshing, witty and cleanly done. Acerbic yet sweet, like a fresh lemonade.

"I have just found this piece of genius. What a talented performer Flloyd is. Some versatile acting provides us with four different and equally believable characters and the piece is written with truth and pathos. Beautiful editing too, I recommend it. And Flloyd, old? Never!" Sarah Macdonald (via Facebook)

“Flloyd Kennedy manages to be both accessible and sneakily subtle – a combination that never fails to have me hanging on to every word. This is whether in her podcasts which are deceptively domestic or her prolific poems or captivating and gently savage songs. They are all worth exploring.” Frankie Armstrong

★★★★★ This is delightful storytelling from Flloyd Kennedy. Gentle but deceptively sharp; underestimate the characters populating this podcast at your own peril. The writing, performance and music are all a joy.
