HANNAH NICKLIN presents a solo theatre/spoken word show about activism, protest and family.
This is a story about them. This is a story about us. This is a story about Hannah’s Dad - a retired policeman - and her, a protestor. It’s about fear, bravery, what it feels like to be kettled, Super Ted, the Lone Ranger, policing the people in front of you and being sent out of class. It's about working out what matters and standing up to protect it.
Mostly, an earnest one person show that also includes the odd joke or two (because all serious things are worth laughing at).
Directed by Alex Kelly (Third Angel)
"Simple, effective and unexpectedly very moving." Andrew Haydon
"“[…] as topical in these days of police ‘kettling’ and undercover provocateurs as it might be timeless in its questioning of the basis of a functioning civic society.” Wayne Burrows
“The personal and the political sit side by side in Nicklin’s remarkably compelling performance, a show to stir forgotten memories and spark new debates.” A Younger Theatre
