At A Younger Theatre we have a bit of a crush on Kate Tempest. The poet-performer won our hearts over when we interviewed her for her last show Wasted where she said she was worried about theatre that alienated young people. Since then we’ve wanted to hug and sing her praises which is why we’re super excited to be offering a competition to win free tickets to her brand new show, Brand New Ancients at Battersea Arts Centre.

To be in for a chance to win 2 tickets, have a look below the blurb…


Brand New Ancients
by Kate Tempest

The gods are in the betting shops, the gods are in the cafe,
The gods can’t afford the deposit on their flat…
Winged sandals tearing up the pavement,
Me, you, everyone, brand new ancients 

Unfolding on the edges of the city, Brand New Ancients discovers the myths of modern times in the lives of two families as they collide, connect and come apart – all racing towards a violent conclusion.

Poet and rapper Kate Tempest tells an everyday epic over an exhilarating live score played by tuba, cello, violin, drums and electronics, that finds the gods of today all around us and reveals that our true heroes are much closer that we think.

Score composed by Nell Catchpole in collaboration with and performed by Kwake Bass, Raven Bush, Natasha Zielazinski and Jo Gibson.
