SS Vyper gives her best friend a copy of a Dizzee Rascal album. It unlocks the conflicts within her Mormon friend's soul...

A semi-autobiographical piece by Debris Stevenson, part of the '14-18 NOW' and 'Represent' programmes. Revived following its success at this venue in autumn 2018.

 

(from the 2018 run - some actors have now left the cast)
Not available. Professional reviewers are pretty impressed. The seat apparently references the colours of the original album's artwork, which delights many. The means by which stories of their lives fuse with music from the album and time period excite most, the only question raised by one reviewer being why a white person is appropriating black culture? That quibble aside, there is plenty for grime fans to enjoy and much for those who know nothing of the subject to get to grips with. A real evolution in musical theatre seems to be the verdict.

The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.

Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm 
Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Runs 1 hour 10 minutes approximately.
