Bingeing poms

For his teeth seem for laughing round an apple.
There lurk no claws behind his fingers supple;
And God will grow no talons at his heels,
Nor antlers through the thickness of his curls.
- Wilfred Owen, Arms and the Boy

Brockley fruit fetishist Lewis Barfoot is performing a one-woman show about the pomegranate at Jackson's Lane, Highgate:

Produced in association with Jacksons Lane The History of the Pomegranate explores the universal richness of being female, fecund and fat with life.

From the turmoil of Persephone to the temptations of Eve, discover whether it’s possible that a single fruit can transcend each religion, conquer every continent and even boost your sperm count!

Lewis Barfoot uses a unique blend of humour, song and physical storytelling to unearth the mystery and magic behind this revered mythical fruit.

Tickets £10 / £8 and include a free glass of pomegranate juice for everyone!

Come for the fruit, stay for the juice.

I guess it must be something in the water round here. Honor Oak resident, comedian and allotmenteer (?) Dan Woods is currently doing the Edinburgh Festival with Jo Stephenson and their Can you dig it show about, er, allotments. Hopefully they might do a local gig when he's got back and had chance to recover.

Seriously odd choice of "chapter heading" on this thread. But then Owen's poetry has all sorts of resonances for me.

With the picture I am more reminded of the joke about the Jewish diners caught out in a restaurant with a splendid sucking pig - "Yes, rabbi, but look how they serve the apples!"
