Jordan Brookes: Work in Progress

28th Jan 2019

Downstairs - Pleasance London


Suitable for ages 16 and above


Jordan Brookes is working through some things. He’s spent the last year attacking himself and his audiences. Now he wants to make amends. This is his attempt to reconnect with others and find what remaining joy there is in an ever-crumbling world, before it’s too late. It’ll be raw, playful and experimental.
