RUNNING TIME/NOTICES: 60mins (no interval)

They’re trying. Despite everything. They’re really trying. They almost work together, beautifully, and the almost is intoxicating.

Award-winning writer Charlotte Josephine’s new play Pops follows a father and daughter caught in a vicious cycle of addiction.  Directed by Barrel Organ’s Ali Pidsley and movement by Jennifer Jackson. Pops is visceral theatre, unpicking how what’s not said affects the body.
