Wasted By Kate Tempest: Paines Plough Theatre Company, Kate Tempest
""I’m making a decision. I’m changing things. This is it."
Three old friends. One remarkable day. For Ted, Danny and Charlotte, life will never be the same again.
A day glo trip through the parks and raves and cafes of South London, where life is what you make it. The words of Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary in an unforgiving world, sound-tracked by an exhilarating score.
A play about life, love and losing your mind.
Kate Tempest is the UK’s most exciting performance poet, currently serving up a storm in the UK hip-hop scene with her band Sound Of Rum. Wasted is her debut play and features her trademark lyrical ferocity in a dynamic theatrical staging.
Contains smoking and strong language. Not suitable for those under the age of 14."
