The Girl with the Poorly Leg

There are Fairies in the Gutter FlyerPicking up where her internationally acclaimed There are Fairies in the Gutter left off, The Girl with the Poorly Leg is a brand new true story of enduring friendship, system failure and street angels, set against the grit and grime of urban decay, aimed at adult audiences and poised, as ever, to provoke a political reaction. It will be available for booking from 2020 onwards and will hopefully go on to storm as many storytelling festivals as its predecessor; including FatE, Cape Clear International, A Sting in the Tale and Alden Biesen.

In the meantime, There are Fairies in the Gutter; which features Ursula’s own songs as well as her poignant and in places, hilarious collection of stories, is now available on CD, inviting listeners of all ages to recall their own childhood ‘furries’ as magically as it ever did and reminding all that these dear folk can always be accessed through memory.

I have been going to Festival at the Edge for a good few years now and I can honestly say that it was the first time I have seen a standing ovation. You truly deserved it. I came away feeling all blessed.
