Morale Is High (Since We Gave Up Hope)
A double act debut performance from Powder Keg predicting what could happen at the next general election.
Morale is High (Since we gave up Hope) is a performance that seeks to predict what will happen between now and the next general election in 2020. Throughout the show, intertwining narratives explore the effects of popular culture, political policy and inane day-to-day actions on who we choose to vote for.
A theatre-meets-gig that smashes pop and politics in some space age futuristic Hadron-collider to create an ongoing evaluation of our political climate.
The debut show from Hodgkiss Award winning Powder Keg, a bunch of best mates who make fast paced, experiential, anarchic performances. Morale is High (Since we gave up Hope) has been developed with the help of Theatre Delicatessen in Sheffield and the kindness of Partisan Collective.
