John Hegley, the star of radio, T.V. and school assemblies, is ready once more to take to road and rail with a clutch of new verses, a few older favourites, and a cardboard camel with a moving jaw.

The biscuits in the show derive from a phrase used by Romantic Poet, John Keats: ‘a scarcity of buiscuit’ – not the sort of phrase nor spelling you expect from a romantic poet. The show delves into the more eccentric side of Keats, alongside everyday goings-on in the Hegley homes of now and yesteryear. It includes 7 drawings of elephants, myths, discos, daleks, optional community singing and the search for a sense of self-worth. Designed
more for adults, but suitable for the odd nine-year-old.

The show won a ‘Lustrum Award’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022, even though there were no biscuits.
