Morale is High (Since We Gave Up Hope)

Morale is High (Since We Gave Up Hope)

Details

A fast paced, raucous performance from the Hodgkiss Award winners weaving together time travel, intertwining narratives and songs performed live on guitar to predict what might happen between now and a future general election in 2022.

Powder Keg’s double act debut performance explores the effects of popular culture, political policy and inane day-to-day actions on who we choose to vote for.

Moving from the present to the future and back, Ross McCaffrey travels to 2022 and returns to warn the audience and his best mate Jake about the failures of contemporary politics and the punishment doled out to society. Ross tells stories of meeting Michael Gove, feeling displaced from his home town and a drug induced water slide incident that happens in Barcelona. But what is Ross not telling Jake? Is this a report on the future of politics or just a platform for Ross to show off about his time travelling adventures? A raw, up-to-the-minute performance for our current times of political uncertainty channelling a gamut of emotion from anger to apathy, passion and despair.
