Protest Song 

2018

“She’s holding me and I’m confused, people don’t touch rough sleepers do they?"

 

Danny sleeps rough. He enjoys drinking and chatting shit. Step into his re-creation of the Occupy campsite at St.Paul’s Cathedral and experience his insight into the movement’s collapse. 

 

Tim Price's Protest Song is an unyielding monologue in which the confrontational, abrasive Danny recounts his experience of Occupy with crackling momentum, showing both its inspiring idealism and harsh realities. To connect with those around him, Danny is forced to confront deeply buried feelings as he struggles to retain his humanity in a society that rejects it.

 

First performed as part of the Baron’s Court Theatre Festival audiences raved about it, describing it as:

 

“ a powerful piece of theatre expertly delivered” - @DebbieBird67

 

“funny, thoughtful, breathtakingly touching, nuanced, and politically-stirring” - @pplaytheatre

 

“Powerful work with some genuinely stunning moments” - @HeliconStories
