KERB – Jane Cartwright

kerbKERB written & performed by Jane Cartwright


Kerb is the story of the kerbs Jane Cartwright has sat on throughout her life. Beautifully written, it is funny, excoriatingly honest and disturbing, and follows her life from toddlerhood to full-blown addiction.



My name is Jane

I sit legs apart

I am undone through years of my own unraveling


Kerb is the incredible second spoken word show by Jane Cartwright, following up on a very successful year since her debut show ‘St Anne’s’ at Boscombe Fringe 2013
