Hello, Welcome, You look very nice. We’re Big Hits and we’re on a mission. You’ll learn
SELF-IMPROVEMENT here with us tonight and you will COMPLETELY improve yourself. That way you can be better in the world. Are you ready? Because if you’re not you’re running out of TIME. We’re going to blast our hearts RIGHT OUT for you right here for you. Do you feel FREE? This one’s for you.

Big Hits rises up in the space between live art and theatre, looking for a good time – and staring hard at censorship, propriety, and the violence that can erupt when noise is stifled. An Unruly Voice is at large, the music’s turned up high.
