Wooden Stick Theatre presents The Streets of London at The Rotunda Theatre (Squeak) Regency Square, Brighton BN1 2FG on 27-28 the May
True street stories about love, drugs, and the struggle to cling onto hope when you feel invisible.In this Brighton Fringe premiere, Wooden Stick Theatre proudly presents The Streets of London a redeveloped gritty solo performance about homelessness by Amy Wakeman. The Company made its debut at Edinburgh Fringe 2020 with Underground, a haunting eco-fable depicting the power of the natural world told through shadow puppetry. Julie and her balloon are old friends, now living on the streets of London.
A careleaver left without support some 20 years ago, she hangs onto her one remaining childhood treasure, an old balloon. Now wearing it as a lucky charm around her neck, she makes a living selling painted balloons to passers-by while sharing stories about her experiences outside the social ‘system.’
Addressing the ‘addiction traps’ that many homeless people face, this play includes real-life testimonies, shining a light on the individual experience, in an attempt to humanise attitudes towards homelessness. Using auditory interludes, this unflinching one-woman theatre piece combines comedy and raw emotion to express a contemporary-driven perspective of being homeless. This play will take you on a journey from politics and philosophy to booze demons and first-date failures.
