Ladybird Boy by Rhys Hollis
Rhys is questioning what masculinity means to him… What effect has masculinity had on his relationship to sex and drugs. In this work in progress we’ll listen as he asks these questions of himself, his ex’s and ex hook-ups.
The Clapham South Mystery by Leiran Gibson
“Never go down the tracks after dark… There’s a reason why the trains stop at night.”
After a fighter plane is shot out of the sky, a Caribbean railway worker hears rumours of strange sounds coming from the tracks after dark and discovers the remains of the wreckage… The aircraft was not a plane, but something otherworldly. This work-in-process solo project is a blend of Andrea Levy’s ‘Small Island’ meets the Duffer Brothers’ ‘Stranger Things’ and will be littered with poetry, art, storytelling and music.
Young, Unskilled and Employed by Paul Cree
A show which explores the connection of low waged, low skilled, menial occupations and the difficulty in trying to lift yourself out of in-work poverty. When you’re treated poorly, what effect does this have on your productivity and welfare? What effect does this have on a region’s/nation’s/world’s productivity? What would happen if we were all treated fairly and paid accordingly? Spoken word artist/ theatre-maker Paul Cree reflects on his own experiences of a being in the workforce whilst pondering these questions.
