This is fist-thumping, pint-drinking, side-tickling, heart-wrenching poetry. This is the spoken word revolution! Over the last three years, the award-winning Loud Poets have cemented their place as one of the top spoken word show at the Fringe. They return this year with a brand-new show filled with comedy, tragedy, politics and poignancy."

Musical with an all-female cast and a contemporary jazz drumming score.
