Busking It

Busking It

A tube tunnel in London. A busker steps up to perform her last ever pitch. She’s dragged along two musicians and she stops you with a story that needs to be told. About a chance encounter that opened her eyes and changed everything. Together, you journey through a year on the London Underground, meeting weird and wonderful people. The city’s unseen stories unfold as you start to stop and listen.

Inspired by 10 years of singing on the tube, Busking It is an honest exploration of loneliness in the crowd. With live and all-original songs, this is a play about love, music, and reaching each other. It’s funny, sometimes brutal, but filled with hope. Despite all our flaws, people really can be wonderful. Especially when they think no-one is looking.

Busking It was originally developed at the RSC. Written and performed by Danusia Samal. Directed by Guy Jones. Music by Adam Cross and Joe Archer, with lyrics by Danusia Samal.
