One Foot In The Rave.

Age guide 16+ Contains Drug and Alcohol References and adult themes. 




In 1976 Sean’s world changes for ever. Dragged into a doomsday cult, by parents who are struggling to find their own identities, the family are brainwashed into believing the end of the world is nigh. 

But the route to salvation is not as it seems…

This debut verse play from performance poet Alexander Rhodes, is an energetic mix of agony and total Ecstasy.  Set to a backdrop of club classics,  Alexander moves effortlessly between the characters and scenes to deliver the chemical highs and pitiful lows.

Expect wry observations, chemically induced inspirations and twisted logic.

***** (5) Witty, Sharp & at times, heartbreaking. Unforgettable. The Herald – William Telford

**** (4) Immersive, emotional & eye opening – Lancashire Evening Post
