Travis Alabanza’s first play for the Royal Court spotlights London’s iconic underground club culture and questions what it means to get your money’s worth when it comes to art.
Legends of the London Queer club scene come out from under the gutter to take over the Royal Court Theatre. Expect punk, profanity and a fierce fight about workers’ rights. Hold for applause. Bring some change. Tip generously.
Sound of the Underground plays at the Royal Court Theatre in London from 19 January to 25 February 2023.
