Friends For All

Friends For All Lexi Copyright Simon Mole 2016

8 year old Lexi doesn’t make friends as easy as some. If only her stupid 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. BSL interpretation on Thursday 27 October. BSL interpretation supported by the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation.
