Pressure DropNamed after a 1960s reggae song by Jamaican band Toots and the Maytals, Billy Bragg's play/gig/installation Pressure Drop is performed at the Wellcome Collection to tie in with their Identity exhibition. It's very apt that the singer-songwriter who penned the lyrics "I'm not looking for a new England" in the eighties has collaborated with writer and artistic director of maverick theatre-makers On Theatre, Mick Gordon, to create this promenade drama with music, about identity and cultural roots. Pressure Drop centres on three generations of a white, working class family and their struggle to define 'home' at a time when the very idea of national identity is shifting.

NOTE: The audience stands throughout the 90-minute performance and there is no interval. Contains explicit language. Not suitable for children under 14.

 

About Wellcome Collection

A major and fascinating cultural venue, the Wellcome Collection combines three galleries: 'Medicine Man', 'Medicine Now' and 'special exhibitions'. In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. More about Wellcome Collection
