Using elements of physical theatre, storytelling, intimate confession and live music, Derailed is about politics and rock & roll. (Or maybe it's just about rock & roll). This is not an advert. We're not campaigning for a political party. We're not sure what we think or what we want. We don't even really know how to play these instruments. There are strong convictions but no plan. Just yet. Little Soldier presents a show about how to change the world. Hopefully. Maybe.
Award-winning Spanish theatre company Little Soldier Productions invite you to join us in the live recording of a concept album about social change.
