Regeneration? Redevelopment? Gentrification?
This fast-moving comedy hurls headlong into the housing debate. Hipsters clash with locals, councils find strange bedfellows, and the homeless take over the estate.
2019 marks 100 years of council housing – what will be left another century on? As house prices rise and rents rocket, is the writing on the wall for what’s left of diverse, patchwork London and its mixed communities?
London housing is a farce. And so is this play. We all have views on property, so come and see the show and have your say – with post-show discussions every night including:
16th Oct – Young people and housing with Jo Carter and Shekeila Scarlett from Immediate Theatre, Estate-Based Youth Theatres.
17th Oct – Polly Neate, Chief Executive of Shelter on their campaign for more social housing.
18th Oct – John Boughton, author of ‘Municipal Dreams – The Rise and Fall of Council Housing’.
19th Oct - Adrian Jackson, Artistic Director and CEO of Cardboard Citizens on the rise of homelessness in London.
Tickets are £7 each and include access to the post show Q&A's. Please do join us.
