JESS GREEN & THE MISCHIEF THIEVES PRESENT BURNING BOOKS

MARGATE: Tom Thumb Theatre

SAT 19TH SEP, 2015 7:30pm

Janine, a tired-out sixty-something fights for her pension on a picket line, as Sandra the librarian surreptitiously removes ‘unsuitable’ books and takes them to the tip, secretly watched by her assistant.

Jess Green tells these stories and more with passionate and lyrical spoken word poetry - underscored by a rousing musical soundtrack from her band, The Mischief Thieves, on acoustic guitar and cajon.

Burning Books is a powerful, humorous and highly topical social commentary on the state of education and the teachers and students who survive within it.

“An internet sensation” – The Independent

“A huge piece!” – Scroobius Pip
