A wedding. A free bar. A blast from the past.
G and Kayla’s lives are a mess but tonight they’re determined to Have It Large. As their veins course with adrenaline and cheap prosecco we follow them on an epic journey through thirty years of Pop.
Can the DJ save them as they become Dancing Queens, reliving their Teenage Dream, Staying Out For The Summer and Spicing Up Their Lives? Pop makes promises it can’t keep, and soon they’ll discover they have more in common than their taste in tunes.
Pop Music is an emotionally contagious rollercoaster. A night at the theatre like no other.
Pop Music will premiere at Birmingham Repertory Theatre before touring the West Midlands supported by the Barry Jackson Trust and touring nationally supported by the Esmee Fairbairn and Paul Hamlyn foundations.
A Paines Plough and Birmingham Repertory Theatre production in association with Latitude Festival.
“The lifeblood of the UK’s theatre ecosystem.” The Guardian on Paines Plough
