why you should watch poet in da corner

Somewhere between East London and Essex in a strictly conservative Mormon home, a girl is given a gift by her best friend SS Vyper. The gift is a copy of Dizzee Rascal’s ground-breaking grime album Boy in da Corner. When the girl finishes listening to it, an hour later, her life begins to change. She goes from feeling muted by dyslexia to tasting the power of her words, from feeling confused and conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore it, from feeling totally alone to realizing she's part of the grime family now.

Watch this vivid technicolor piece that exists in a world where music, dance and the spoken word collide and set sparks flying. This limited run comes to London's Royal Court ahead of a UK tour. Poet in da Corner caught the attention of critics and audiences at its premiere and the run is expected to do incredibly well. The creator of the show, Deborah 'Debris' Stevenson, describes herself as a dyslexic writer, grime poet, working-class academic, pansexual ex-Mormon and social activist. She wrote and stars in Poet in da Corner alongside grime MC Jammz who plays SS Vyper.

Critic Reviews

“The heartstopping moments, though, are in the spoken-word poetry, when words blaze the stage and Stevenson appears like the Kate Tempest of grime”- The Guardian
