Spring 2019 |Theatre

POP is a brand new work created by EVENTHORIZON. THEATRECO., a progressive North-West based theatre company. The language, pace and energy of POP is exhilarating and presents a tender tale of teenage friendship set in an unapologetic, audacious two-hander in urban Nineties Northern Britain.

Abbi and Beth. Ladettes having it large. Incarcerated to a lifeless northern town, dreaming of walking catwalks in Paris and partying with rock stars in London. Just like Kate and Naomi. Instead, they’re stuck in a small northern town, incarcerated in pre-fab science labs and cold wet playgrounds, English and Maths and PE.

But that was nine years ago. Nine years ago to that day. Nine years ago to that night. That room. Those people. That thing...

Teenage friendship is tested and the bonds of loyalty severed one night; Beth’s secret relationship with Craig unearths feelings Abbi can’t control, resulting in an act of destruction with a far more severe cause than the intended effect. A fractured, anarchic and heart-breaking future unfolds.

Spanning a decade, from the mid-Nineties to the Noughties, taking in London and New York, POP is an audacious theatrical presentation, mixing music and fashion in an unflinching and raw, intercultural, funny and tender new play.
