Protest Song, by Tim Price, is performing at the Barons Court Theatre Festival on Saturday 7th April 2018
Presented by the Florence Theatre Company
About the play:
Danny sleeps rough on the steps of St.Paul’s Cathedral. One morning he wakes to three thousand people on his doorstep as protesters begin the Occupy movement. In this heartfelt monologue the confrontational and abrasive Danny recounts his experience of the movement with acerbic humour and crackling momentum, showing both its inspiring idealism and harsh realities. As his participation in the protest develops Danny is forced to face feelings he thought he had left behind as he struggles to retain his humanity in a society that rejects it.
