Richard Tyrone Jones's Big Heart

from Allographic Press

How do you fight back when your own heart tries to kill you?

RTJBH is A spoken word show about heart failure. But with jokes. Shortly to become a BBC radio 4 mini-series, broadcast in Autumn 2013.

For his thirtieth birthday RTJ, the healthy, gym-going “Ringmaster of Spoken Word” (★★★★-ThreeWeeks) at Edinburgh’s Free Fringe got an unexpected present: heart failure.

Now join him as he relives his perilous journey to the operating table and back again with his long-awaited, understandably-delayed debut solo show: a healthy prescription of cardiomyopoetry, (re)animation and anecdosage, not just for spoken word fans but for anyone who has a heart. Or failure…

This is the book of the show, with extra exclusive, unperformed material and all the gruesome illustrations you could wish for.
