‘A crowd-pleasing play with troubling depths’ The Guardian ★★★★
POP MUSIC is a piece of gig theatre. Gig theatre is a mixture of the aesthetics and rules of you might expect at a gig and those you might expect in the theatre.
Gig theatre is about doing things differently so we can attract a different audience. This is a chance to get people who would normally feel more comfortable at a gig, or stand-up comedy, to try out theatre.
A wedding. A free bar. A blast from the past.
G and Kayla’s lives are a mess but tonight they’re determined to Have It Large. As their veins course with adrenaline and cheap prosecco we follow them on an epic journey through thirty years of Pop.
Can the DJ save them as they become Dancing Queens, reliving their Teenage Dream, Staying Out For The Summer and Spicing Up Their Lives? Pop makes promises it can’t keep, and soon they’ll discover they have more in common than their taste in tunes.
Pop Music is an emotionally contagious roller-coaster by Bruntwood Prize winner Anna Jordan – a night at the theatre like no other.
It’s the latest gig-theatre extravaganza from the producers of WITH A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK by Sabrina Mahfouz, HOPELESSLY DEVOTED and WASTED by Kate Tempest.
