A journey of culture clashes and social media storms in London’s East End
The pursuit of community and equality is at the heart of Emilia Teglia’s gritty new play #Haters, which is being performed at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch on Wednesday 15 February at 8pm.
Inspired by real events of gun and knife crime in London’s East End, Odd Eyes Theatre’s hard-hitting #Haters explores the changing faces of our neighbourhoods in the wake of urban regeneration. It’s a thought-provoking piece that looks at how social media is influencing today’s society.
The play centres around two young heroes, worlds apart that gravitate towards each other against the will of alluring internet trolls. Its powerful message of culture clashes resonates with audiences as it is something that society today continues to endure. #Haters is about opportunities, fate, values and depicts real life; a modern day society reliant on technology and defined by social class.
It is a truly remarkable piece of contemporary theatre that uses expressive art to get audiences thinking. Expect spoken words, outlandish sounds of everyday dreams and bittersweet humour.
#Haters is performing on the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch’s foyer stage on Wednesday 15 February at 8pm. Tickets are £9 (£7 concessions) and includes a free drink.
This event is part of the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch’s Outer Limits Festival, a rolling festival of work made by artists from outer East London and Essex. It provides local performers, playwrights and theatre makers with a stage to get their work heard in the local community.
