Thu 3 - Sat 5 Aug 2023

“North London forever, whatever the weather, these streets are our own…”
Louis Dunford

Raucous, rude and always so unflinchingly herself, Liz summons her best friend (and grandson) Mark for a spontaneous whirlwind trip around North London. From Jackie’s wake to the Emirates Stadium on match day, Rowans bowling to Highbury Fields, Liz and Mark make it a Friday to remember.

Celebrating the understated joys of living, 24 (Day): The Measure of My Dreams stands up to the stereotypes of ageing, and shows how mobilising those closest to us can fuel us through the most daunting changes.

Following the success of The Key Workers Cycle, Annie Jenkins24 (Day) is the first in a trilogy of plays bringing together local artists, community performers and professional creatives to explore what it means to live, work, love, pray, celebrate and mourn in Islington.

Praise for The Key Workers Cycle:
“A life-affirming, entertaining and affecting one-day wonder”
The Telegraph
