“I don’t believe in the Republican Party or the Democrat Party…I just believe in parties.”
Sex and the City
An election plays out on a television. A party plays out on Zoom. A group of people come together in a darkened room. Maybe they’re friends or maybe strangers, but nobody wants to go to bed and nobody wants to go home. So they start talking.
After Party is an autobiographical performance of personal and political comedowns growing up in the aftermath of New Labour. It begins with the election party Annie’s Dad threw in 1997, and reimagines possible parties from the past, present and future, all scored
by a live DJ.
It’s a show about late nights, early mornings, zoom seshes, party politics and men who letyou down. It’s about Britpop, Brexit, broken promises and 7am break downs. It’s about Tony Blair and all of our Dads.
After Party takes on a new charged relevance in 2021, where parties are prohibited and politics feels hopeless. What comes after the party, and what comes after that? You know what they say, things can only get worse…
After Party is in association with Platform Glasgow and has been generously supported by Creative Scotland, Tramway, and CCA. The development of the work was facilitated by a Tramway Supports Residency. A live version will be performed at Camden People’s Theatre
and a digital showing will feature as part of Tramway TV.
