I Hate Alone

Written by Ellen Brammar | Directed by Jessy Roberts | Desgined by Tish Mantripp | Music by James Frewer

‘If you’ve ever fucked us over, you better watch out.’

After their band ‘Disabled Barbie’ gets turned down by a snooty record label, Danielle and Chloe are done with being trampled on. Their solution is to make a list of everyone who’s ever wronged them or stopped them from getting what they wanted. Come with them as they cause chaos in order to take their vengeance, spurred on by an anarchic soundtrack. I Hate Alone is a rip-roaring piece of gig theatre about injustice, revenge, and how far you’d go for a friend.

Katie Johnstone

Written by Luke Barnes | Directed by Frazer Meakin | Designed by Charlotte Hurrell
