Simon Mole presents
NO MORE WORRIES
Created by Simon Mole and Peader Kirk. Co-produced by
Apples and Snakes, the Albany and ARC Stockton.
Tickets: £12 | £10 conc, Age Guidance 14+
Ever wanted to get away from it all? Kieran is 27, and stuck in a dead-end sea-side town. He wants to see the world, one exotic cocktail at a time. Paul is 50 and on the road again, a British Lebowski in an old skool campervan. Trusting in tai chi and the power of sevens, he’s on a quest to reconcile then and now. Sometimes the past is the only thing you can’t leave behind.
Poet Simon Mole has collaborated with director Peader Kirk to create a poetic theatrical adventure. No More Worries combines spoken word and contemporary theatre with a live electronic soundscape. #NMWtour
