Disobedience: Chris T-T Sings A.A. Milne was a runaway word-of-mouth success at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011. Chris didn’t tour Disobedience, but he’s happy to perform it on request, wherever and whenever. Since last summer he’s also performed it in private cellars, secondary schools, at Leeds University’s Clothworkers Hall and in Brighton Friends Meeting House.

The requirements are: a good, playable piano (upright or grand) and a seated audience of all ages. If the space is small enough to accommodate an unplugged (entirely un-amplified) performance, this is preferred. The show is 50 minutes long and if necessary can be split into two halves of 25 minutes. Alongside the A.A. Milne poems there is a middle section including two of Chris’ own songs.
