“If I don’t know you and you don’t know me, then you're free in your anonymity.”

Cities are full of stories. It’s amazing what you hear if you stop and listen.

Drawing on tales from a decade of singing on the tube, Busking It is a journey through the tunnels of the London Underground. A piece of gig-theatre giving voice to the passers-by, blending chance encounters with original live music.

Written and performed by Danusia Samal (RSC, Royal Court, Soho Theatre, Ghost In The Shell), with music by Adam Cross and Joe Archer. Busking It is produced by Emma Shaw and directed by Guy Jones (Mayfly, The Winters Tale, Orange Tree; Spokesong, Finborough).
