Review of The Sage gig (March 15th)
'Nunnery's gift for words was evidently her forte on the stage, with the songs such as Poverty Knocks and England Loves a Poor Boy evoking echoes from Bob Dylan to Blake Morrison.
With two albums under her belt, this multi-talented songstress is evidently one of the great new voices of British folk.' Eleanor Dickinson, The Journal
Click below to see footage of Lizzie performing Poverty Knocks with full band and wonderful backing from the Liverpool Socialist Singers, filmed at the launch gig for new album Black Hound Howling.
New reviews for 'Black Hound Howling'
This is what the press are saying...
'It’s hard to imagine a record more original from any emerging artists.'
Folk North West
'Lizzie is a true crafter of words. These are thoughtful, thought provoking and evocative songs.'
'A synthesis of lyrical inventiveness, musical innovation and superb arrangements. 21st Century unease has rarely sounded this good.'

Black Hound Howling: the new album out now!
Available now: Lizzie's new duo album with Norwegian producer and multi-instrumentalist, Vidar Norheim. The record features further collaborations with Liverpool Socialist Singers and Gary Daly of China Crisis, and has already been winning great reviews.
Bido Lito music magazine had this to say about it: 'A stunning collection of anti-capitalist anthems and beat poetry. Underscored by winding arpeggios, the album is a perfect reflection of early 21st Century affairs'

The show has now transferred to Theatre503 in London where it runs from 2nd-26th November. Tickets are still available. "But tickets here"
Lizzie's new play, 'The Swallowing Dark' will be opening in the Playhouse Studio in Liverpool on October 20th, followed by a run at Theatre503 in London from 2nd November.
Canaan and his son have come a long way to escape the horrors of Zimbabwe under Mugabe. But when Martha asks him to revisit his darkest memories, he’s forced to fight for their lives a second time.
Martha needs only an honest tale, but are either of them who they seem, and is the truth ever a simple story?
Performed in the intimacy of the re-opened Playhouse Studio, this world première of Lizzie Nunnery’s The Swallowing Dark is a psychological thriller that combines devastating power with the telling of a good story.
Lizzie was interviewed for the fantastic Vienna culture site, Kulturwoche. Click below for news of new material and to find out what the Austrians make of 'Company of Ghosts'

Anthology @ Liverpool Everyman
Lizzie's play "Unquiet" opened this week as part of "Anthology", a co-production between the Liverpool Everyman and Slung Low theatre company. The show begins at the theatre but audience members are quickly whisked away to see one of seven shows happening simultanously in different locations in the city.
If you want to see Lizzie's piece just specify at box office when you arrive. Not giving away too much, it takes place somewhere dark and spooky, is packed full of Liverpool history and may involve an explosion.
