Why Bother Keeping Things in Your Head
Written and performed by Shirley Halse
Everyone loves the internet. Everyone also feels they should open a bit less time on the internet. It’s the world’s greatest collection of human endeavour (and cat endeavour) but it’s also making us all a little bit stupider.
Shirley Halse has spent a lot of time reading Wikipedia searching Google and liking Facebook to try to work out how the internet might be changing our brains or not. In her work-in-progress piece Why Both Keeing Things In Your Head she will argue the case for learning facts as well as searching for them.

Still wearing a giraffe onesie from a night’s drinking, Sid awakes from a nightmare in which he was pursued by predators. All Sid wants is to get some sleep and to catch up on David Attenborough on iPlayer. He certainly doesn’t want a call from his flatmate Leo telling him not to touch his laptop. And he really doesn’t need Leo’s girlfriend giving him the third degree about where Leo has gone.
All Rose knows is Leo received a text reading “I’m going to hurt you so bad” before he disappeared. All Sid knows is the man who sent that message is a brutal criminal called Craven.
So Bad is a black comedy perform at the breakneck speed of farce however there are no quick entrances and exits and no wardrobes in which to hide.
