Presented by Barrel Organ
LIVE is back. A scratch night curated by Barrel Organ; presenting experimental and non-traditional work from under-represented artists that specifically acknowledges the presence of the audience and plays with the ‘liveness’ of theatre.

Previous nights have included work from Ellie Stamp; Council XI; Jules Orcullo; Claire Gaydon; YESYESNONO (Total Award Winner’s 2017 with 5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist); This Noise; Joseph Morgan-Schofield; and many more!
The line up:

Shame Spiral Joyride by Joanna Greaney
Shame Spiral Joyride is a one-woman cabaret musical lecture party written and performed by Joanna Greaney about her shameful life as a bisexual, Irish, Catholic (of course) woman and how she survived – with the aid of song, dance and her therapist.
About the company
Barrel Organ is a UK-based touring company founded in the West Midlands that works collaboratively to create politically engaged theatre. We are proud to be associate artists at Camden People’s Theatre.
Our style is inherently, self-consciously theatrical. We draw attention to the context of theatre and highlight the audiences’ relationship to their surroundings. We create pieces that engage with the audience and ask them to interrogate various aspects of twenty-first-century culture.
