“It’s been an incredible journey. And it feels really special to be able to come back to Pegasus Theatre, the heart of where it all started. It’s where my inspiration and ultimately where Body Politic was born.

“I hope that many people can join us in celebrating the community, the place, and the people who have contributed to such a unique and special organisation that prioritises the creativity and empowerment of young people and their experiences.”


The audience will be invited to the post-show Q&A with Emma-Jane with drinks and a live set by DJ SPINADA
