A Permanent State of Emergency

A Permanent State of Emergency.

A political-cabaret cum European-saga.

Jess is in her twenties. She still lives with her Dad and her Step-Mum, Cath. Cath bagged Jess a part-time job working in the Leicester visitor information centre: Jess should consider herself lucky.

But instead with no prospect or purpose in labour, love or life, Jess embarks on a one-way trip through Europe in the search of meaning.

Cath follows on Jess’s heels, determined to make her grateful.

This is a story of being the young and infantilised on a continent that feels like it’s in a permanent state of emergency.

Presented as a script-in-hand reading with music, as part of Hope Mill Theatre’s Powerhouse Plays support programme.
