Downstairs – Pleasance London

Suitable for ages 18 and above


For the white working class peeps and the men in particular,

This tale is a word of warning,

Your pink sky in the morning.

You can do anything with words…


In a profound and thrilling mix of music and storytelling, head/lining is a lyrical deep dive inside the mind of an ordinary white boy as he comes to terms with his noxious upbringing and orbits mental breakdown.


A crackling indie rock gig that tears itself open to confront fragments of society, family and self, this fearless one-person play grapples with class, identity and prejudice in modern Britain.
