Who the F*** are you?

I'm the Walrus of Loneliness. Let me in.

A few years ago in the middle of a shitstorm of life events, single mother, artist and proud Londoner Annie Siddons found herself living in suburbia by accident. This show is a hilarious, brutal and poignant attempt to describe what happened next. Performed by Annie Siddons and Sarah Moore. With films by Richard DeDomenici.

Directed by Justin Audibert and Nicki Hobday.

Annie Siddons is a Londoner, writer, performer and musician. Her work is funny, brutal, honest and poignant, embracing the mythic and the mundane, and always has narrative and music at its root and heart.

As playwright/dramaturg she has worked with Kneehigh, Bristol Old Vic, Battersea Arts Centre, Teater Sagohuset, The Gate, National Theatre Studio, Shakespeare's Globe, The Unicorn,Glasgow Citizens' Theatre, Fillament Theatre, Undercurrent Theatre. As writer/performer, Annie created Raymondo in 2014, which ran at Summerhall as part of Escalator East to Edinburgh, then returned in 2015 for the British Council Showcase, touring across the UK 2015–16. She followed Raymondo with How (Not) to Live in Suburbia, her first foray into autobiographical work. The show, featuring videos by performance artist Richard DeDomenici, played Summerhall in 2016 before two sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre 2017. As part of making the show Annie trained as a Samaritan.

How (Not) to Live in Suburbia tours the UK in Spring/Autumn 2018 and is in development for TV, which lead to Annie making her TV debut on Alan Davies,chat show, As Yet Untitled. Her new show, Dennis of Penge, a mythic spoken word show about addiction, friendship, Dionysus and SE20, with music by Asaf Zohar, will play Edinburgh 2018 before a London run and national tour 2018–19. Annie regularly mentors younger and emerging artists and works collaboratively and alone in a variety of settings. She has a fruitful long-term collaboration with director Justin Audibert.

"Subtle, sincere, riotously funny and endearingly raw." Broadway Baby

"Siddons' distress is our pleasure... witty and profound." Evening Standard

"Heartbreaking Autobiographical performance." FestMag

"Highly Recommended!" Alan Davies on my Radar, Observer

HNTLIS premiered in Edinburgh 2016 and completed two sold-out runs at the Soho Theatre in 2017 and a cross disciplinary symposium on Loneliness at UCLAN. It tours throughout 2018 and 2019 and is currently being developed for TV.
