Hail To The People present a hilarious and emphathic exploration of youthful hedonism and social responsibility, a new play by Greg Shewring - winner of Pleasance Indie Award for Best Theatre Newcomer 2017
Two old school friends return to suburbia to wreak havoc on childhood dreams and a system they believed would bring them future opportunity. Confined within a car for most of the journey, old secrets are aired out and open questions are asked about who they have become since leaving the suburbs. Speeding through girls, grades and badgers, they fight, spit, cry and kill but still find it hard to accept their feelings are only human.
Blending unfaltering dialogue and physical expression with a booming backseat soundscape, Poll Function is a hilarious and emphathic exploration of youthful hedonism and social responsibility in 2017.
“If I could watch this again and again and again I would.”

“This is a triumph.”
“Shewring has created a tender portrayal of young male friendship that has the maturity and insight to bother representing those often ignored and making their views valid, their humour funny and their lives matter.”
“It’s always encouraging when a small start-up theatre company in one of our main regional centres, hits the ground performing to the highest standard.”
