Presented by Lauren Gauge
The Unmarried is a truly original production that’s boldly cross-genre. Sharp comedic and poetic writing laced with explosive musical beats. This is gig theatre. Theatre you can rave to.
Rhythmically underscored by a live mix of beat boxing 90’s Dance hits and old school UK Garage. Award winning actor-writer Lauren Gauge explores with cutting comedy, the feminist defiance of the legacy of a patriarchal society that nearly succeeded in defining the hopes of a generation.
The story we tell is a raw, feminist, comedy. Luna is a bold a brass lager lout on the prowl for wild times, whilst in a 7 year long relationship with a wanker banker. Come and see the show explode with powerful performances, beat boxing and vocals…
Cast: Lauren Gauge
Beatbox & vocals: Kate & Nate (of Battersea Arts Centre’s beatbox academy.)
