In 1968, rock music was changed and influenced by artists coming together to produce a bargain-priced sampler album: one album, one track each. This was The Rock Machine Turns You On.
In 2014, THEATREclub have gathered 16 artists to come together.
One slot each. A bargain priced ticket.
And a festival of scratch showings of new work, pieces which are still raw and not yet fully formed.
THE THEATRE MACHINE TURNS YOU ON 4 – The Jam Sessions offers you a unique chance to see the big shows of 2015 before anyone else.
THURSDAY 22 JANUARY
Always Going Home
