RAZOR SHARP PUNK POET BRINGS AWARD SHORTLISTED SHOW TO THE BUXTON FRINGE
GOD SAVE THE TEEN
Written and performed by Andrew ‘Mulletproof’ Graves Directed by Rob Gee
Described as 'pure genius', God Save The Teen is all about growing up and getting it wrong, offering tales of starry-eyed punks, disappearing Goths, disastrous dates and Eighties' rock 'n' roll failure. Add in a confused poet and a highly critical, flatulent single dad and you get hilarity and heartbreak in equal measure. Shortlisted for a coveted Saboteur Award this year, it’s a must see.
BUXTON FRINGE FESTIVAL goers will get the chance to see the show on 7th JULY at 7.15pm and 9th JULY at 2.30pm. Both shows will be at Underground Venues - The Square, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6BD
The show is already picking up some great reviews and audience feedback:
“His monologue swooped on the turn of an 80s single from gut-wrenching pathos to a broad all embracing humour that warmed his audience”
Shaking The Colours ★★★★★
“He launches into a series of stories of his adolescence, in turn sad and hilarious. The narrative whips back and forth throughout the eighties and is dotted with vivid vignettes of clarity and humour.”
The Western Park Gazette ★★★★★
Andrew Graves has been featured on 6 Music’s Cerys Mathews show and BBC Four’s recent documentary Evidently John Cooper Clarke. Cited as “The hardest working poet in the East Midlands.” and favoured by comic book legend Alan Moore, he can often be seen performing on stages up and down the UK. His first pamphlet Citizen Kaned, was released in 2012, whilst his latest collection, Light At The End Of The Tenner, was released in 2014. His work is raw and gritty containing a dose of adroit comedy, which champions the underdogs and underclass.
