Dawn Micklethwaite is an eternally optimistic football fan from Sheffield. In Dawn’t Stop Believing she uses her podcast, ‘Dawn’s Big Footy Thoughts’, to interrogate the philosophical nature of joy and happiness and how these things only really exist in a happy counter-balance with misery and disappointment. And if being a devoted football fan can’t teach you this profound lesson, nothing will.

LIFTED: A Trilogy of Audio Plays

LIFTED is a trio of short audio pieces by three exciting writer/performers we hope you're going to hear more from in the coming months and years - Tabby Lamb, Danusia Samal and Eva Scott.

The trio was a chance for us to explore three very different experiences and types of joy across three very formally different pieces - a theme we thought fitting to begin our second season of Written On The Waves, particularly as we take our first steps out of a year of lockdown and the difficulties that have come with it.
