WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Skin Deep takes the audience on a Double Decker bus ride back to the eighties to experience how subcultures, that evolved in Britain's major cities, sent a shockwave that reverberated across the UK and touched the hearts and minds of West Country youths. From Kingston via The Kings Road to Sidwell Street, Skin Deep evokes memories of the unique culture of eighties Exeter; the places and the people. It is a celebration of subculture that is comic, tragic and deeply poignant.
The year is 1980. Born out of the cultural melting pot of Jamaica, London and Coventry, Ska and Two Tone music is sweeping the nation and has arrived in Exeter!
