About this event

A story about having the confidence to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in.

When being that little bit different can be a good thing after all…

8 year old Lexi doesn’t make friends as easily as some. If only her school would allow a non-school uniform day then she could be herself and find others like her. Inspired by Grandad’s hippy stories from the swinging 60s, she decides to fight the powers that be, namely her class teacher, Mr Marsh, and the class bully, Suzy.

Friends For All is an interactive spoken word performance for families, with rapping, dancing and far-out video projections. It is a story about having the confidence to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in.

Poet and rapper Simon Mole performs in this humorous and moving piece, co-created with theatre maker Peader Kirk.

Commissioned by the V&A as part of the Family Art Fun Programme and inspired by their You Say You Want a Revolution exhibition (2016/17). Developed with support from Apples and Snakes, the Albany, University of Bedfordshire and Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre. Funded by Arts Council England.
