ELECTROLYTE will tour the UK from April 2019.
You can purchase the play text, published by Samuel French, below:
Jessie's sick of Leeds.
A city she thought she would never leave.
But the aimlessness of the people
she once believed she would always need
Wondering whether she's had enough,
in a dirty nightclub not too far off,
Jessie's blinded by the light of Allie Touch,
a singer song-writer with a taste for big ambitions,
amongst some other stuff.
Feeling rough in the five in the morning sunlight,
Jessie's sight is fixed on the path that Allie lights
And like a moth to a flame in the night,
Written in spoken word poetry and underscored entirely by original music created live, Electrolyte is an explosive piece of gig theatre exploring grief, depression and psychosis.
