The economy has crumbled, politics has turned our society on its head. The apocalypse is here. What we need is a strategy to help us navigate this bleak political landscape. And most important of all, we need that strategy to be delivered through poetry... Join our passionately political poets and performers Emma Ireland, Spike Pike, Sophie Sparham and Mike Took for a left-of-centre look at the state of our world and an idea of just what the actual physical dickens we are all going to do about it.
