EVERYTHING WE NEED
 Ben Mellor
World premiere by award-winning writer and performer
I'm building my own ark.  I'll decide what gets saved. 
“Simply one of the UK’s most charismatic spoken word artists, Ben’s poems pack an entertaining but thought-provoking punch that transfixes audiences around the country.” Phrased and Confused


Gil
sits in a motel restaurant worrying about what the receding flood-waters will reveal.

Lily records a YouTube rejection to a husband who imposed an Eden that wasn’t her idea of paradise.

Pedro awaits a new liver, wondering why our god-like access to technology can’t help him communicate with his daughter.
  
Loosely inspired by classic myth and climate change research, Everything We Need is a collection of humorous, lyrical and moving monologues from seven characters coming to terms with life changes in a changing world.


“A pure undiluted talent. Concentrated” Lemn Sissay
