Poetry Army

‘Poetry Army is a revolution in poetry. And it’s the revolution in poetry’ – Jeremy HardyRoyPoet-73
An extraordinary work from the writer Heathcote Williams (Glasgow Herald Archangel – Lifetime’s Achievement Award Winner) Poetry can seriously f*ck off authority figures. It gets under the skin of those whose brains have been made rigid by power. ‘The right words, in the right place’ can cut deep and change the world. Featuring the verse, lyrics and music of Maya Angelou, Jim Morrison, Billie Holiday, Sophie Scholl, Emily Dickinson, Abu al-Qasim al-Shabbi, Martin Luther King, William Blake, Arundhati Roy, Victor Jara, Gil Scott-Heron, Lupe Fiasco and many, many others, this groundbreaking show is a celebration of those who have spoken up against tyranny while making our hearts pound. Narrated by Roy Hutchins with Jonny Fluffypunk, Sameena Zehra, Selina Nwulu plus special guests. Live music by Mike ‘Dr Blue’ Directed by Paul Hodson.
