Hear Me Howl – gig theatre

Lights Down Productions present – HEAR ME HOWL, a one woman, rowdy as hell piece of gig-theatre like no other.

Jess is turning 30 and she’s just discovered punk. Some might say punk is dead, others would say she should really stick to the day job, but the resounding concern is: shouldn’t she be concentrating on settling down by now?
The play explores the characters journey via her discovery of punk music (& punk philosophy) and her story is told from behind and with the help of a drum kit and defiant, with drumsticks in hands, Jess lurches into an unknown future, one where she throws convention to the wind, and questions how much autonomy those with a womb really do have, here in the western world.

It promises to be a very punk, DIY performance, half gig/half spoken word, full rage! Through learning about punk Jess finds a way to express her anger at what society expects from her and she rages against the path her life is on.

We are at Landor Space, Clapham, South London 7th, 8th and 9th March at 7:30pm and 9th March at 2:30pm.
