Pops

POPS hero image

Gavin Roach presents the Australian premiere of Pops by Charlie Josephine.

His prodigal daughter needs a place to crash, break, and burn baby burn! But the apple doesn’t fall...

A warts-and-all work by playwright, Charlie Josephine (UK), examines the DNA of a fractured father/daughter relationship fuelled by chronic depression, addiction, and social shame. Needle-sharp, physically articulated, opera-fkn-radically punctuated with moments of movement that feel something like, Sarah Kane met up with Carol Churchill for a doof-set by the DJ from hell, with “tracks” so buckled, we can’t look away - till they crash.

Praise for Pops by Charlie Josephine:
★★★★☆ "Hits you like a train...” – The Stage.
★★★★☆ "Josephine is able to shake off the baggage of familiar, sensational depictions of what addiction does to families” - The Guardian.
★★★★☆ "artfully represents what is a constant and unending battle” - WhatsOnStage.
