WE ARE LIGHTNING!
By Sam Halmarack & Joseph O’Farrell (JOF)
You are invited to the final requiem for the last music joint left in town.
Acclaimed Australian artist Joseph O’Farrell (JOF) and Sam Halmarack combine theatre with the fist-pumping euphoria and power ballads of a stadium gig, in WE ARE LIGHTNING!, a darkly comical work that reflects on the importance of communal spaces where people can come together and express themselves.
Gloucester Guildhall is transformed into a music venue on the brink of closure. A teen band, a community choir and ageing rockers join JOF’s drums and Sam’s guitar to mark and protest its demise, leading audiences through a strange ceremony and heartfelt celebration of how music shapes the lives of the people that play it.
Join us for our last chance to come together and be saved by music.
