What is it?
Fresh from sold out runs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 and Adelaide Fringe, Unpolished Theatre brings the multi award-winning play Flesh and Bone to Soho Theatre this summer.
This fast-paced ride through a working-class estate fuses Shakespeare-inspired lyricism with cockney accents, giving a voice to a community often ignored.
With their homes due for demolition, the gritty residents of an East London Tower Block fight for their very right to exist in a city that is unjustly trying to kick them out. Exploring the depravity, triumphs and utter hilarity of their situation, Unpolished Theatre thrust the audience headfirst into the story.
Flesh and Bone seeks to articulate the unspoken, drawing from real life and giving a voice and compassion to characters who society frequently turn its nose up at. Inspired by Eliot Warren and Olivia Brady’s own families and observations, this show has been awarded a Scotsman Fringe First, the Holden Street Theatres’ Edinburgh Fringe Award and a Critics Circle Award in Adelaide alongside the Overall Best Theatre Award of the entire festival.
East-End born and bred, Elliot Warren and Olivia Brady met at Bournemouth University where they began to forge work that gives a voice to working-class communities in this country. Warren and Brady founded Unpolished Theatre in 2017. The company aims to give voices to the unheard and fire out voracious theatre, jam-packed with heart and soul.
