I’m making a decision. I’m changing things. This is it.
Three old friends. One remarkable day. For Ted, Danny and Charlotte, it’s time to seize control. Make a difference. Change things.
This is it. A day glo trip through the parks and raves and cafes of South London, where life is what you make it.
The rapid fire words of Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary in an unforgiving world, sound-tracked by an exhilarating score.
A play about love, life and losing your mind.
Paines Plough enticed Kate Tempest – the UK’s most exciting performance poet, who is also currently serving up a storm in the UK hip-hop scene with her band SOUND OF RUM – to put pen to paper and write her first play.
Specifically commissioned for a festival-going audience and premiering at the Latitude Festival, WASTED is Kate’s debut play and features her trademark lyrical ferocity in a dynamic theatrical staging.
Tickets: £12 Adults / £10 Concessions / £40 Bring Your Friends (4 tickets).
