Pops Theatre & Performing Arts

pops


Pops follows a father and daughter caught in a cycle of addiction. Despite everything, they're really trying to honestly connect.

Despite everything, they're really trying to honestly connect, forgive the unforgivable and love fiercely through a hopeless situation. Asking challenging questions about mental health, Pops looks at what is inherited and who is responsible, particularly in this harsh political climate. There are stubborn stigmas around mental health, particularly for the working class, and Pops seeks to tell a story that rids people of self-inflicted shame.

Charlotte Josephine comments: The cruelness of austerity is, of course, that it damages those who need the most support. The tabloids enjoy spreading lies that addiction is a choice, an ignorance, a greedy self-indulgence. It’s hard to get well when the national narrative is repeatedly insisting you’re bad, not sick. Shame is a killer, and the antidote to shame is empathy. Story telling is empathy making, and there’s no better art form for story telling than live theatre. We need it, now more than ever.
