about the production

Mischievous, subversive, fun and fizzing with wisdom, HOW TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD WITH A PIANO! is an invitation to stand back and laugh at a world that is quite clearly bonkers, and take a timeout to realise a better way of dealing with it. Join award-winning psychologist & songwriter Steve Bonham, along with ace composer and musician Chris 'The Bishop' Lydon, for our INTERACTIVE, WELLBEING, MUSICAL SHOW thingy! With humour, storytelling, great songs and gentle audience participation, discover the "Five Rules of the Road" for a better existence. Don't miss this unforgettable experience!

about the artist

We exist to celebrate the extraordinary stories of ordinary folk. We believe in the 'artisan values' of craft, inspiration, authenticity and the love of the raw materials. Artisan Creative was created to provide a platform for developing distinctive recordings, books and performances. Artisan Creative is led by two self-producing artists: Steve Bonham – award-winning psychologist in his own right, now author, musician and vagabond. Christopher Lydon – musician and creative producer, who was performed throughout the UK and Europe.
