From the food waste bin into which her friend had a nervous breakdown, Lia tries to make sense of the twenty years she spent serving food and drink. Crying into Bins chronicles tales collected over two decades and takes shape as a long-form spoken word poem. But expect a little more than one woman and a microphone. Sprouts, for example, there will be sprouts. Sprouts, truth-telling, nervous breakdowns and laughter in this poetical exploration of mental health, societal structures, terrible rage and bittersweet acceptance.

“I have spent my adult life shovelling leftover potato fondants into my mouth in the vain hope that the sheer volume might make up for the lack of company, posh dress and dinner music they were designed for”
