Free Lunch with the StenchWench

Photo in collaboration with Lesley Ewen.

7.30pm. £8/£6 concessions. 

A humiliating scrap with growing up skint in flat broke Britain.

Charting the drive for survival and fitting in, the StenchWench shares stories of growing up as one of the ‘feral underclass’ whilst precariously existing in Austerity Britain today. Cheap clothes, thrifty bread, cold baths, and debauched disadvantaged dancing will be investigated as Catherine charts the drive for survival and fitting in. Stories and songs about how to get by and make do will be shared about her itinirate childhood in the 70’ and 80’s, whilst she attempts to overcome the shame of ‘lack’ and celebrate our spirit of community and hope.

Expect a one woman flea circus with faded glory, austerity pants, drop scones and hot chocolate.

Free Lunch with the StenchWench is developed with the support of The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter, Stanley Halls and Arts Council England.
