A community centre in Luton will transform into ‘Club Revoluton’ this week for an immersive comedy-drama.

Club Revoluton is inspired and performed by young Lutonians and explores what it is like to live, love, work and socialise in the town today.

The play in Marsh House Community Centre will follow the lives of two young people through school, university and beyond, set to early-noughties and more recent music.

Written by award-winning writer James McDermott and directed by Chris Yarnell, it is a co-production between Revoluton Arts and 1DegreeEast.

An excerpt from the script reads: “Lu wanted to be an actress. Tone wanted to be an astronaut. Their parents told them if they worked hard, they could be anything they wanted. Lu worked hard and now she’s a waitress in The Hat Factory Cafe. Tone worked hard and now he’s a gas salesman polluting the atmosphere he loves. How do they deal with being mediocre like everyone else? By going clubbing in Luton, of course…”

The play will be the first professional acting credit for the six young actors bringing the script to life.
