About The Greatest Hits of Lily and John

Track One: JOHN IGNORES LILY’S CALL Track Two: LILY COMES ROUND UNANNOUNCED Track Three: LILY AND JOHN MAKE A THING TO DISTRACT THEMSELVES Those are the first three tracks on The Greatest Hits of Lily and John. Lily hasn’t heard from John in over 4 weeks. John’s depression has spiralled and he’s video recording a final goodbye. But when his ex- girlfriend, and now co-dependent best friend, bursts in catching him in the act, he lies and says it’s material for a new play. About a dressage horse. So ensues a weird and wonderful journey in which they enact a thinly veiled guise of their own lives. They sing, they dance, they fight, they talk about their deepest struggles whilst dressed as horses. The Greatest Hits of Lily and John is a semi auto-biographical, modern folk story exploring loneliness, creativity and how friendship and conversation can inspire change. In partnership with The Listening Place, HiS charity and HUMEN. Age Recommendation: 14+ Includes discussion of suicide and depression
