Thunder’s Mouth Theatre presents a new kind of online theatre, an audio drama podcast.

“Am I Old Yet?” follows the life of 77 year old Helen Docherty, living on her own, except when her family decide to invade her space “to look after her”, or because they want her to fix them. Helen is determined to claim her space as ‘elder’, ‘senior’, ‘crone’ with dignity, honesty and joy. Although the dignity part is proving the most difficult…

Good question. And also, why did I decide to make Rockhampton (known in Queensland as Rocky) the home of Helen’s sister Marian? Well, it’s a middling-sized regional town on the Fitzroy River, about a third of the way up the east cost of Queensland from the NSW border. You’ll see some lovely aerial images here. […]

Stranger Things…

This week has been a strange one. It seems to me that the closer we get to the possibility of having no formal restrictions concerning the pandemic, the more people behave as if there never was a pandemic. Happily chatting and sneezing on public transport with no masks and no social distancing, they remind me […]

Nostalgia Kick

This week’s episode has Helen chatting via Zoom with another of her college friends. Esme (Essie) has moved to Houston, Tx with her partner BethAnn and it’s clear they both have mixed feelings about Joey’s memoir project. This whole podcasting escapade of mine, creating these characters and exploring their relationships and stories over time continues […]

“Just what is old? You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”

Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable.”

“Clever tales in a unique woman’s voice. Flloyd’s mini-dramas are refreshing, witty and cleanly done. Acerbic yet sweet, like a fresh lemonade.”

“I have just found this piece of genius. What a talented performer Flloyd is. Some versatile acting provides us with four different and equally believable characters and the piece is written with truth and pathos. Beautiful editing too, I recommend it. And Flloyd, old? Never!🙂”  Sarah Macdonald

“Absolutely wonderful, almost sounds as if it was written by a real writer.”
Bill Cooke, (who is even more twisted than Flloyd).
