Bighouse Theatre is back with new political performance ahead of the election
Wednesday 25th March to Saturday 11th April
The Big House Presents…
Created by Ben Musgrave, with Andrew Day.
A verbatim piece inspired by real stories from the cast.
“These people who we want to listen, I don’t think we ever get to see them… these people hide.”
The words of young men and women who have survived the chaos of the system. Who have lived the consequences of political games. Who now have 60 minutes to be heard.
Inspired by real stories, and an extraordinary visit to the Houses of Parliament, this is a wild, tender, funny and devastating exploration of the political lives of young people on the margins.
