what dya need books for yr homeless?


Book now  Trailer  Access

a homeless hostel 'support worker' once said 'what dya need books for yr homeless?'. our revenge was thirteen years of reading, graduating from the open university, 2016. this highly visual performance is all about asking questions, regaining our voices, 'rewriting the future.' we kick the bucket, demonstrate how red tape saves lives, ask is the money happy?, offer creative resistances and ultimately estate-agent plastic gets turned into a wee home lit by a book. theres crime-scene tape and free zines for all and you can even send back your own uses of that crime scene tape post-show.
