Don't Talk to Strangers
by Hot Cousin
VAULT Festival 2020
Performer & Sound Designer
What could be more romantic than giving your lover a mix tape? That’s what scientist Carl Sagan thought in 1977 when he compiled his Golden Record on behalf of all humanity and sent it shooting off into space in search of friendship, love and maybe more. Forty-two years later, why haven’t the aliens messaged us back? Is it because our message came across as arrogant, colonial and sexist? ‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ is a disruptive parody of revisionist history - a story made by men but retold by women; four women on a collision course with our own problematic history. ‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ is both an intersectional re-evaluation of this ground-breaking musical love letter and a trashy rom-com about us and the aliens.
'...a show that comes with a confident, one eyebrow slightly raised humour, and a structure in which repetition becomes a way of moving forward, making us see and hear differently.' -Lyn Gardner
4 Stars “Experimental theatre at its finest.” -The Spy in the Stalls
4 Stars- “Funny, touching and hugely
“Experimental and exhilarating...one of the more fascinating shows at the VAULT Festival.” -Ought to Be Clowns
by Sarah Henley
VAULT Festival 2020
A new play by Sarah Henley and directed by Tori Allen-Martin. An odd-couple comedy about loneliness, grief, eccentricity, music & love.
Broadway World UK- "With Ally Poole's sound design, the characters' music tastes overlap and break into each other, creating a sonic palette that heightens the similarity and divergence of the duo."
The 730 Review- "...combine theatrical elements such as...Ally Poole’s superb sound design."

She Sells Sea Shells
by Helen Eastman,
Scandal and Gallows Theatre
Edinburgh Fringe 2019
This three-hander included a sound design that required a severe storm, a 18th century waltz and a vaudevillian presentation. Directed by Madeleine Skipsey, She Sells Sea Shells, ran the entire length of Fringe, sold out on many days and received several 5 and 4 star reviews.
