Price: Pay what you decide


small house built from estate agent plastic - lit up - slogan on it reads : provoked 2 madness by the brutality of wealth

solo theatre show.

this ‘support worker’ once said ‘what dya need books for yr homeless?’. this socially distanced indoor solo show is about our revenge – thirteen years of reading, graduating from the open university, 2016c.e.. this highly visual performance is all about giving voice, changing ‘the’ narrative, rewriting the future. we kick the bucket, show how red tape saves lives, and ask whose the bigger criminal – us or the govern-mentals : there is crimescene tape for all. we offer creative resistances and show how to reframe narratives – housing is a human right. ultimately estate-agent plastic gets turned into a wee home lit by a book while the austerity-crutch flowers thanks to pages of a book. the title of the show is a line from engels – conditions of the working class in england and this is his 200th birthday year

relaxed performance


The Holbeck (run by Slung Low), Jenkinson Lawn, Holbeck, Leeds, LS119QX
