Beats – podcast

With almost no set and one actor, Kieran Hurley’s Beats tells the story of Johnno McCreadie, a teenager living in a small suburban Scottish town at the time of the 1994 Criminal Justice Act – a new piece of legislation which effectively outlawed raves, or “public gatherings around amplified music characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats”.

Written and performed by Kieran Hurley, Beats is a vivid, descriptive and captivating piece of theatre. You can listen to Kieran talk about his work during a Traverse podcast:
