What would you do if someone knocked on your door and asked, “What’s important to you?” Hopefully, you’d give an honest and thoughtful answer. Well, this is exactly what Rowan McCabe set out to prove in 2015 when he asked this very question to strangers up and down the country, and he’s coming to Exeter Phoenix.

Rowan McCabe comes to Exeter Phoenix on the 22nd of April, with a funny but thought-provoking production based on his experiences during his final outing of door-to-door poetry. This performance opens a wider conversation about our relationship with the people around us, what matters to people, and if strangers are really as scary as everyone believes.

Tickets are priced at £10, or £5 for students and under 25s. Get yours here.
