Tickets & Information

This Town is a modern-day epic narrative poem, performed and written by exciting new talent Rory Aaron (BBC New Creatives, Southbank Poetry Collective).

An ode to home, This Town uses powerful spoken word to transport us to a post-industrialised landscape, weaving together stories of loss, PTSD, and friendship.

“This is for those from the far-off towns that nobody’s heard of. Who sit on busses rolling backwards out of cities and watch everything fall into silence.”

Commissioned by Contact and Derby Theatre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Partners Kings College London Military Health Department and Child Right’s International.
