Synopsis


Dennis of Penge is part gig, part poetry, part theatre performance, all transcendent.


"No matter how shit your day has been

No matter how low the world wants to make you

No matter if the money came from the back of the sofa

No matter if no-one respects you

No matter if you haven't been touched in a sex way for a while

No matter if your ideas go unheard, or even unspoken cos you're shy Fantastic Melly's Chicken is a church that welcomes all, salves all, in its delicious opiate salty battery wings.

Its cross, the fluorescent perky cock's face

you see it, you know you're welcome and will find solace.

You won't be judged. You will be redeemed. Ready to face the next bit of the shit that life spits.

You're a small god.”


Loosely inspired by Euripides' the Bacchae.


Dennis of Penge is about poverty, addiction, friendship, ecstasy, chicken shops, love & SE20.
