Find out about THE CAST HERE
A show that gives the gritty residents of an East London Tower Block, that is due for demolition, a stage, through their wickedly eloquent voices we are thrust into their stories, held by the scruff of the neck, and made to listen.
The show began at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden, London. It was performed 2 weeks before Christmas and went under the radar of most critics and papers. At the start of 2017 Unpolished Theatre applied for the Charlie Hartill Special Reserve Fund at The Pleasance Theatre and won. This meant that The Pleasance Theatre gave the company £10,000 in kind and a venue at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017. It was there that the show gained great success. It won a Scotsman Fringe First award in its first week, the Holden Street Theatre Award and a sell out show award. It also gained over 15 four and five star reviews.
In late 2017 it was developed inside the National Theatre Studio. In February 2018 the show jetted off to the other side of the world to perform for 5 weeks at The Adelaide Fringe Festival after winning the HST award. It is here where the show gained more critical acclaim, won a Best Theatre Award and the Critics Circle Award.
In July 2018 it will have its London Transfer to Soho Theatre.
