Joey: a play by sean burn – June 2019


I wanted to get in touch to let you know more information and offer you discounted tickets to the upcoming play, joey produced by gobscure and written by disabled artist sean burn.

joey is a high octane monologue performed in BSL and English, a true story of growing up in 80s Britain and imagining possible, better futures.

It is a story about playgrounds and care-homes, DMs and red laces, punk and cassette tapes, about smashed up tellies and running away, about three kids called spaz, dumbo and psycho. A story of love and rage and surviving it all.

The play touches on mental health in a poetic and sensitive way, drawing on the lived experience of the writer, sean burn. It explores how our experiences growing up have an impact later in life, and how love and relationships provide strength and solidarity.

We would like to offer you half price tickets for the shows at Queen’s Hall Hexham and Northern Stage, while tickets at ARC Stockton are Pay What You Decide and so no payment is required up front. Please use the following links and codes to book your tickets:

Queen’s Hall Hexham – Thursday 7th June. Use the code JOEYFIVE for £5 tickets
