Meet Holly. Holly’s a hilariously potty mouthed, working class, queer woman. She’s a die hard West Ham fan by night and a person who wipes sh*t for a living by day. Does she complain much? All the time. But recently, things ain’t been so good. Holly witnessed something. Last Tuesday. Something unthinkable and its only just hit her. But here she is, with you lot…singing West Ham songs, eating Lidl crisps, waiting for the last train. Whilst you wait with her, sit back and let her address the real sh*t that’s going on with this world (and the transport system).
Presented by the ‘Not Another One’ Collective, a rehearsed reading of ‘Not Another One’ by Ellen Jupp. The performance will be followed by a Q+A with the LGBTQ+ Mental Health and Wellbeing Charity elop.
‘Not Another One’ is a solo show created to spark debate, written as an urgent response to the UK’s mental health crisis, exacerbated in the wake of the pandemic: ‘As many as 10 million people, including 1.5 million children, are thought to need new or additional mental health support as a direct result [of the pandemic].’ (Guardian, 2020).
