“Life-afﬁrming artistry, restores the faith of even the most downtrodden socialist in the audience” Everything Theatre
Lost in the bliss of foreign travel, Imogen joyfully succumbs to the spoils of Western privilege. Returning to Scotland, a harsh society confronts her. Dangerous politicians prevail, the media sells ﬁctions masquerading as reality, an ocean of social media sympathy pours forth for Western terror victims, yet backs turn on the migrant crisis.
What staggering hypocrisy.
A seamless blend of sharp spoken word poetry, dark comedy and original music, #Hypocrisy reminds us that in complacency lies the most heart-stopping terror.
#Hypocrisy is Imogen’s debut show. It has toured internationally since its Edinburgh Fringe premiere in 2018 to consistently sold out audiences. The script was published by Speculative Books in March.
