As an extension of our show Protest: The Musical Populace has been working with the artist Emer Mary Morris over the past few months to develop our latest show about the housing crisis and the mothers of Focus E15 with an all female cast. Emer has been part of the campaign since its origins and is an activist working on eviction resistance in social housing in & around London.
After a very successful R&D evening at the Young Vic (courtesy of the Genesis Programme), we have had scratches at the Southnank Centre as part of Mind The Gap in the Changing Britain Festival: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/mind-the-gap-1000876
We then were invited to perform this at the Roundhouse as part Deanna Rodger’s event Home: http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/whats-on/2015/the-last-word-2015/home-/.
