Our 5* show, Bangers will be at the Edinburgh Fringe from Wednesday 2 – Sunday 27 August at Roundabout in Summerhall.
This “joyous party of a play” (The Guardian) started out life in hostels, day centres and prisons, before its three week run at Soho Theatre in June 2022. The show is testament to our mission to showcase world class art in places you wouldn’t expect to find it. Bangers was also the first show to be supported by the Citz Futures Scheme, our programme which offers paid work experience in the theatre industry for people with who have lived experience of homelessness, poverty or inequity.
It’s club night and the tracks are spinning. Two headliners crossfade between stories of love, sex, and losing their creative spark – set against a backdrop of precarious lives in urban London. Featuring original tracks inspired by early noughties and present-day R&B and garage, Bangers follows the highs and lows of two strangers struggling with their own pasts, while hurtling towards the future.
All the while, the DJ continues to play, dropping words of wisdom and banger after banger.
