14th November to 15th December (The Big House, Englefield Road)
Bullet tongue girl gonna show you now. Bullet tongue girl gonna tell you true
Bullet Tongue is the new production from The Big House and is the first show to take place at our brand-new premises in Islington. The play tells a new and powerful story that aims to get to the heart of what life is like for young people involved in gangs.
The story centres around a young girl involved in County Lines drug dealing, Bumper, and her struggle to find her voice and identity in the street gang world of London. The audience is taken through the challenging and sometimes harrowing circumstances in which Bumper finds herself as she gets in deeper than she can cope with.
Bullet Tongue is one of our most technically ambitious shows to date, with a promenade taking place between 7 different spaces, and locations range from a seaside caravan to a Hampstead flat. The show deals with themes that are the hot topics in London right now and are making headlines across national media outlets. If you’re interested in seeing hard-hitting theatre at its finest, buy your tickets while you still can.
