The Lost Letters of Cathy G
Whilst in a junk shop, looking for photographs of families he’d never met, Paul stumbled across a wad of forgotten letters, lost since the 60’s. Spanning across America, France and Edgware, Paul dusted off these lost letters of hopeful groupies and first loves to produce a fantastic show in 2010. He then went on to find some of the authors of the letters and the show returned to The Edinburgh Festival in 2013 and was even more popular. It has also been performed at London’s Leicester Square Theatre and Canal Café Theatre.
‘Sweetstory of 60’slove’. – Sarah Millican
‘Genuinely touching and amusing, a real charming hour ****’ Time Out
‘Isawit atthe Fringe. A jolly talewith a melancholic tinge. And some sharp shirting’ – John Hegley.
Paul Harry Allen’s Retro Delights
A sublime showcase of junk shop curiosities and retro nonsesne. Having rummaged his way around the UK, Paul will take you on a tour of some of the junk and charity shop oddities he’s found. From china dogs in hats to photos of people he doesn’t know – this is a delightful delve into the ridiculous, a passionate tale about his love of preserving the past. With a mixture of storytelling and stand up, Paul celebrates his love of collecting and takes a laugh at the past.
