Kind Words Spoken

“one of the most promising spoken word artists in the country, who avoids misty-eyed accounts of society and instead cuts through with brilliant observational political commentary.” The Irish Times

"There’s many a spoken word show about the injustices of capitalism, Thatcherite privatisation, and the difficulties of being gay in the modern world. McKenna’s show achieves the complex feat of synthesising all this in a beautiful, 55 minute, rage against the system..." LondonTheatre1
