Alicia is a hot mess. She doesn’t know what she’s doing with her life. Swiping left, swiping right to find the perfect match. Even though she’s a Londoner, born and bred, the scent of Lagos peppers her existence in the ends. Everyone around her seems to know where they’re going in life, but she’s trying to find ways to cheat growing up and keep her 16-25 railcard. What does it mean to be an adult, and when do you become one? Quarter Life Crisis mixes addictive basslines, spoken word and audience participation.

This event will be preceded by an introduction to This is Yesterday, the latest project from Leeds based Manic Chord Theatre, which explores what dementia might reveal about our potential to live both in the present, and outside of it. The company will present an exclusive early insight into a new digital, storytelling world looking to uncover how we experience memory both collectively and as individuals. Following the presentation there will be an open discussion about the project with the company, their collaborators and local community groups.

7:30pm THIS IS YESTERDAY : An Introduction (Manic Chord Theatre)

8:00pm QUARTER LIFE CRISIS (Yolanda Mercy)

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
