Something About You (makes me want to hurt you)
Sample from soundtrack
"This show is good: inventive, intelligent and interesting... If you're in or near Peckham I recommend you see Something About You, as it's well worth the trip" – Plays to See
"Dirty Market are clearly a serious-minded and seriously inventive company." - Time Out
Set amongst the decayed, stained-glass splendour of rediscovered gem, Asylum Chapel Peckham, Something About You... fuses theatre, dance and art to take the audience on a journey into a mythic past. Inspired by Electra, this lyrical, comic, sometimes violent piece is a call to action: stop waiting for heroes and take your own authority, if you really want to feel alive.
