Spanner in the Works – Yellow Pack – 6 Feb

These are unprecedented times. The price of fuel is soaring. Wage packets don’t meet the basics. Interest rates are rising. People are having to choose between food or heating.

But what about those already on the margins? We are witnessing new levels of poverty, homelessness, addiction-related death and severe mental illness.

If you are not outraged, you’re not paying attention.

Meet Fingers, nicknamed for being light fingered as he tries to find somewhere to get washed before he goes to court.

Jade, who has been homeless since leaving the care home and is now addicted to drugs. To fund her self-destructive lifestyle she has turned to sex work.

…and Elise mother of two who works 40 hours a week and is struggling to pay her rent.

Contains strong language and scenes that some might find upsetting.

This performance from Spanner in the Works Theatre Company is supported by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and the Policing and Community Safety Partnership.

Venue: Theatre at The Mill
Dates: Monday 6 February 2023
