‘I highly recommend Imogen Stirling’s wonderfully worded show ‘#Hypocrisy’. An immersive meditation on those aspects of reality we conveniently turn blind eyes to.’ Loki
‘We are delighted to long list #Hypocrisy for the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award. We select Fringe productions that shine a light on human rights abuses in a meaningful way and #Hypocrisy questions why the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War can be conveniently overlooked as headlines focus on more trivial matters.’ Naomi McAuliffe, Amnesty International’s Scotland Programme Director

Edinburgh Fringe 2018 reactions:

‘Really impressive poet with a lot of charisma. Performance was thought-provoking, engaging and sharply focused on contemporary issues.’

‘Fantastic show and a flawless performance! Extremely engaging poet with a very charismatic delivery. Makes the audience think and discuss topics that she delves into.’ 

‘A tour de force! With only the simplest staging and intuitive guitar accompaniment, this talented poet held the audience intent. Beautifully written and timely.’

‘Didn’t know what to expect but we were blown away, so glad that we chose to come to this! Great energy – this woman has something to say and she says it so well.’

‘What a fantastic show from a very talented young lady. If you get the chance to go and see Imogen at any future performances – please take the opportunity.’
