Alice’s award-winning and unconventional poetry performances have captivated audiences ever since she made her start as Artist in Residence of CQAF back in 2014. Her unique way with words has won her slams and fans both locally and internationally, with poems commissioned for BBC TV and radio, and internationally touring live performances, supporting talents in poetry, music and comedy, including Katherine Ryan, Duke Special and Lemn Sissay. In this new adaptation of her critically acclaimed one-woman show ‘Earth To Alice’, after a break from performing that included two admissions to a mental health ward, Alice tackles the stigma of mental illness head-on as she plays with the boundaries between poetry, comedy, storytelling and theatre. Expect laughter, some tears, and a life-affirming kick in the balls in this re-emergence of a talent not to be missed.

“Alice McCullough is radiant when she reads her poems -she is one of the rare gems I’ve discovered on my gigging circuits across the waters. Her words cover all corners as she quietly stamps down injustice and concocts poetry potions with equal part sadness and joy. Basically, she’s bloody great.” >Hollie McNish

“A warm and confident slam-winning performer, Alice McCullough is a strong and sensitive voice on the poetry scene in Northern Ireland whose poetry is well-deserving of a wider audience – She’s a dead rare red hair Fred Astaire of words.” Tony Walsh

“Wonderful! I especially like the ‘Love’ poem and the ‘Wonderland’ poem – delightfully good.” Simon Callow

“Great show – fragile but in control, real, and in the moment.” Kevin McAleer
