Description

'Americana is a place of dreams / And our young protagonists could embody this hope / Though soon their fates will be in dire-straits / Imprisoned to the ethereal land of folk...' A nation’s youth are trapped in a murder ballad they cannot escape. A gunman lurks on every corner. He’s behind you. He’s beside you. He’s inside you. This is freedom. This is a warzone. This is Americana. How do we break the ballad? Multiple Fringe First winners Pepperdine Scotland make new music from old songs in this perpetual story of fear.
