Georgina will not only be performing at this event, but attendees will be offered the chance to ‘bid on Georgina’ for a commissioned poem and performance for their organisation. All proceeds will go directly towards the new Young City Reads programme, reaching some of the most disadvantaged young people in the city to instil a lifelong love of reading.
Georgina Wilding supports:
God Save The Teen, written and performed by Andrew Graves
A funny and moving coming of age show about growing up and getting it wrong.
A poet and former youth worker Andrew Graves relates a drama of gob-smackingly embarrassing first dates, imagined rock-n-roll supermarkets, divorce, disillusion and working class rebel. Expect disappearing goths, sadistic PE teachers and a search for the truth and somewhere to belong.
Whether a teen or not, everyone will relate to this honest and nostalgic prayer to that joyously painful, pimple-faced period in our lives where everything and nothing seems possible; where you can be earnest, awkward, beautiful and ridiculous all at the same time.
With live performance by musician Benjamin McElroy.
Directed by Jennifer Tang, produced by Renaissance One and funded by Arts Council England.
Georgina Wilding performs her Centenary commissioned poem, alongside a set of others on the theme of womanhood, for the Nottingham Contemporary Centenary celebration event.
