In the beginning, there were words – first words, second words, sentences and then, our life stories. But where do those stories start? And how do the stories we tell ourselves end up shaping the people we become? In this warm and relatable spoken word show, award-winning poet PM answers these questions and shares their own experiences as a 20-something, British-Indian queer person. In the beginning was the word is guaranteed to have you laughing, crying and questioning your identity all at the same time.
