Bernadette Russell and Rob Kennedy were invited to be part of Volcano Theatre's Troublemaker's Festival, curated by Dan Thompson. We did our workshop Sign of The Times, followed by a march and a rally which included these local performers reading a list of wants.


Recorded and edited by Rob Kennedy.

Troublemakers Festival was 14-18 July 2017.


We asked people, two days after the 2017 general election, to tell us what they wanted. They each listed ten things, chose their favourite, then made  a placard of that one. The placards and lists went on public display at Toynbee Studios in Shoreditch. This podcast include every single "want" written down that day. To see more images of the results, go here


A mini podcast presented by Bernadette Russell, following our live show at Deptford Lounge on 3rd December 2016. This podcast features:

Santa's Sci Fi Salon was a variety night looking at the possibilities of a positive future, with space dust and those spaceship shaped sweets that are full of sherbet. It was fun.
