A hard-hitting, intelligent, Performance Poetry show about Labour, Tories, and the division of the left.
When Jess joined the Labour Party at university in 2007 she doubled the number of members who met weekly in a Liverpool pub. Since then she’s stuck by the party through the downfall of Blair, the disappointment of Brown and the monolith of Miliband. Now, “after a decade of keeping her membership card firmly at the back of her wallet”, she’s fallen head over heels in love with Corbyn’s “raw socialist magnetism”. If only everyone else agreed...A Self-Help Guide…sees Jess muse on the question of how the party will ever win another general election when the left is so divided.
Jess Green’s new rousing, lyrical and humorous show follows the success of her first - Burning Books - which received 5* acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe, and went on to be transferred into a play which toured nationally in 2018.

“It’s written all over her face and in every word of every poem she performs. She really cares – and that’s what makes it impossible to tear your eyes away from her.” – Broadway Baby
