Me and Joseph O’Farrell (The Suitcase Royale) combine theatre with the fist-pumping euphoria and power ballads of a stadium gig, in WE ARE LIGHTNING!, a darkly comical work that reflects on the importance of communal spaces where people can come together and express themselves.
A Town Hall is transformed into a music venue on the brink of closure. A teen band, a brass band, a community choir and ageing rockers join JOF’s drums and my guitar to mark and protest its demise, leading audiences through a strange ceremony and heartfelt celebration of how music shapes the lives of the people that play it.
Join us for our last chance to come together and be saved by music.
The work is supported by: MAYK, Arts Council England, Arts House and City of Melbourne.
