Pops from award-winning writer Charlotte Josephine (Bitch Boxer, Blush), directed by Ali Pidsley of Barrel Organ, and co-produced by Live Theatre, follows a father and daughter caught in a cycle of addiction.  Despite everything, they're really trying to honestly connect, forgive the unforgivable and love fiercely through a hopeless situation.  Asking challenging questions about mental health, Pops looks at what is inherited and who is responsible, particularly in this harsh political climate.  There are stubborn stigmas around mental health, particularly for the working class, and Pops seeks to tell a story that rids people of self-inflicted shame.
