Poet In Da Corner at HOME

Reporter: David Upton
Poet in Da Corner, inspired by Dizzee Rascal’s seminal 2003 album Boy in the Corner, comes to HOME in Manchester March 24–28 in a brand-new production from London’s Royal Court Theatre.
In a strict Mormon household somewhere in the seam between East London and Essex, a girl is given Rascal's album by best friend SS Vyper.
Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change—from feeling muted by dyslexia to spitting the power of her words; from being conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore; from feeling alone to being given the greatest gift by her closest friend.
