Is This Thing On?

What’s better, sad songs or sh*tty poetry? Meet flatmates Mary and Liz, one a musician and the other a poet, as they battle over integrity, ownership, the spotlight and whose turn it is to buy the f*cking toilet roll. As their friendship reaches boiling point, one fateful open mic night forces them to confront each other over whose right it is to tell someone’s story. This two-hander dramedy blends stand up, song, spoken word, rap, and storytelling.

Is This Thing On? is written by Megan Keaveny and Ellie Campbell (MissMatch), and is an electric new piece of devised theatre co-produced with So La Flair Theatre.

This collaboration marks MissMatch's debut into the theatre scene with the show already being praised as 'full of humanity, heart, and humour' (MancMade Productions). As well as being So La Flair's well anticipated return from their sparkling tour of 'How To Keep Up With The Kardashians' (2022) which celebrated them as the 'company worth watching' (British Theatre Guide).

TW: Strong language, homophobia, references to sexual assault, loud/sudden noises, strobe lighting.
