Do You Remember The First Rhyme?

In 2019 Lisa O’Hare took a career break after 20 years working in tax.

Rather than a marathon or a bungee jump she decided to a fix of adrenaline by staging a show at the Greater Manchester Fringe.

Having found her creativity, and amidst the pandemic, she then performed at Zoom open mics, posted online and developed a poetic voice.

Now she has created a show Do You Remember The First Rhyme?

It begins with the first poetry book her mum bought (that she found again in lockdown) and tells the story of how a creative streak developed in childhood, was put away for two decades and was rediscovered at the GM Fringe.
