News from Vauxhall

At The Hope Theatre

February 25th & 26th Bird Mouth Collective is super excited to bring their full show News From Vauxhall to The Hope Theatre in Islington! 

News From Vauxhall by Bird Mouth Collective Inspired by a ten- year series of prolific, poetic, and philosophic notes by writer and Vauxhall resident,  Alan Alphie  Pritchard, Bird Mouth Collective, will deep dive into various aspects of the writer’s mind in their newly devised work,  News from Vauxhall.

Expect great story telling, physical theatre, puppetry and even tango dancing on a wild Odyssey- like trip through London’s dark back streets, mysterious underground clubs and abandoned cinemas.

The show is as hilarious and satirical is as it is poignant and haunting.

It is part farce, part illusion and part fantasy with a lot of questioning of reality, flipping the middle finger at greed and examining the myths and absurdities that keep the city ticking.

Performers rapidly and surreally change characters and locations from moment to moment undressing literally and figuratively before audiences eyes. Expect to see noir like detectives who travel foggy streets in a search for truth and meaning, Victorian prostitutes condemning  “history in all its manifest horror”, an overbearing demigod  boss accompanied by office workers creating commercials about life in “boxes”  and a sultry chanteuse singer/poet who believes London looks “nostalgic in the dark, where myths still embrace enchantment.” at a smoky underground club, called The  Radiant Cool.

While various aspects of the writer’s voice bring these farcical, absurdist, grotesque characters to life, they also wrestle with them in moving soliloquies, where they are visited by repeated vivid memories of a horrifying train explosion and the loss of a friend,  where they are battling a gripping depression coupled with a passionate desire to stand up for a fair and equitable world.

 Anticipate a roller coaster ride of emotions, a raucous-wild ride of both laughter and hearbreaking London stories in Bird Mouth Collective’s newly devised and powerful show, News From Vauxhall.
