8 year old Lexi doesn’t make friends as easy as some. If only her school would allow a non-school uniform day then she could be herself, and find others like her. Inspired by Grandad’s hippy stories from the 60s she decides to fight the powers that be, namely her teacher and the class bully.
Friends For All is an interactive spoken word performance for families, with rapping, dancing and far-out video projections. Inspired by the V&A’s ‘You say you want a revolution’ exhibition. It has joined Half Moon Theatre Presents portfolio and is available for tour booking enquiries. Please click HERE for more information.
