Alcohol, City Lights and Slow Songs

Alcohol, City Lights and Slow Songs

LIFT, Bernie Grant Arts Centre and Fuel present


Five strangers meet late one night. One has a blanket. They set up a picnic in the middle of the road and piece together the past 24 hours of their lives.

Poet and playwright Inua Ellams found the lyrics ‘Alcohol, City Lights and Slow Songs’ lurking in one of the songs on Drake’s second album Take Care (2011) and wondered what it might feel like to be a young person living in a city like London in the context of those words.

In a workshop with 15 young people from Tottenham, Inua discovered ridiculous, tragic, poignant and hilarious encounters and his mellifluous moving response, melding the stories, will be shared on stage for the first time.

Age Recommendation: 14+
