Take Away

May 2016 at Royal & Derngate

Take Away by Jackie Kay

Take Away tells the story of a town which is in the grip of onions - everyone is doing what they can to get their fix. Darcus, a travelling poet, turns up and offers to rid the town of the onions with her rhymes, for a small fee.

A poetic ensemble piece about a community who pay the price for refusing to keep their promise.
