Be Bold For Change

Be Bold For Change

Breaking in to the industry. You hear that all the time. It’s become a mantra. I get the sentiment behind the words but the words themselves have always struck me as misplaced. Misused.

Breaking in is something furtive. Something you do with the lights off. When there’s nobody around. When you can be in and out quickly, anonymously. Illegally.

This is the opening to a blog post I wrote for The Hospital Club on the subject of International Women’s Day. You can read the rest of the post here.

Rhubarb Ghetto

Rhubarb Ghetto

A raw, explosive story about life on either side of an underpass. 

Billy is a gang leader tying up loose ends before disappearing to escape the clutches of a mysterious character named Pavel. Scarlet is the mother of their 15-year-old child Alfie. 

Rhubarb Ghetto is an intimate portrayal of a relationship two decades in the making. It looks at choices and lost opportunities. It poses uncertain futures for the characters against the backdrop of life in London where rich and poor live side by side. It looks at the turf-war at the heart of the capital and the gentrification that has replaced council estates with hipsters, coffee culture, and urban allotments. 

Life in London can change dramatically in the length of a single underpass. Luxury flats on one side. Gangs and drugs on the other. 

Whichever side of the underpass we live on defines our choices and our future. But in the shadow of City Hall, we all live in the Rhubarb Ghetto. 

Rhubarb Ghetto makes its world premiere at The VAULT Festival in 2020.
