RADAR Performance: Chapel Street

Sold out

Presented by Scrawl Productions in collaboration with Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2012

‘If I died tomorrow, I would have died having done nothing. So I made a promise there and then that we would live tonight like it was our last’

He’s been let down, belittled and ignored but tonight none of that matters – it’s Friday and Joe is getting smashed. Kirsty has bought some vodka on the way home from school and is hastily shaving her legs with her friend’s dad’s razor. As bottles are drained and the sun sets the two hit the town, neither aware that soon their lives will irreconcilably collide.

Chapel Street is the debut play from one of the UK’s most exciting new writers, Luke Barnes. Crackling with energy and dripping with humour it is an acerbic yet compassionate portrait of good times gone bad for a betrayed generation, which carries a pertinence in the wake of David Cameron addressing ‘Broken Britain’.

First presented as part of Old Vic New Voices Edinburgh Season 2012 in partnership with the Underbelly, supported by Ideastap.

Ella Road, one of our Emerging Writers’ ruminates on having writer’s block. There’s a tree outside my bedroom window That didn’t give any apples last year. I’d watched it carefully from my desk.

LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
