Masks, Moustaches and Persona

Thursday 8 March, 10:00 - Sunday 11 March, 22:00
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Level 2 Foyer

Choose your own poetry persona

Through our theme The Self, this year’s festival explores identity and persona in and about poetry. Here we offer a selection of masks and moustaches for those would would like to play around more literally with ideas of identity, disguise and persona.

Why not try some out? Decorate your mask with some poetry, and be sure to get someone to take a photograph of the result. We’ll hope to share these on social media during and after the festival.

NB: Please note, these stick-on moustaches may not be suitable for people with sensitive skin or similar.
