The Unsung

A raucous funeral party for the lost and the forgotten.

Winner of Best Spoken Word Award at Buxton Fringe 2017.

Weaving spoken word with original music from a live band, The Unsung was researched and developed as a residency project at Bank Street Arts in Sheffield, using a Grant for the Arts from Arts Council England between March and December 2016. Much of the material was written during a week-long residency at Sheffield Theatres as part of Making Room.

Next showing: 24th August – Bridge Inn, Rotherham
