  Hopelessly Devoted by Kate Tempest  
  Trestle Arts Base
Trestle Arts Base
St Albans  AL4 0JQ
  Thursday 6 March, 7.30pm
A Paines Plough and Birmingham Repertory Theatre production
A parent knows devotion. A football fan, an athlete, a scientist, a priest. They feel it. No matter how hopeless it seems.
Chess is in prison. Facing a lengthy sentence, her cell mate, Serena, becomes her soul mate. But when Serena is given parole, Chess faces total isolation. Hope comes in the form of a music producer looking for a reason to love music again. She finds a powerful voice in Chess. But to harness her talent, Chess must first face her past.
Following her smash-hit début WASTED, Kate Tempest’s incendiary new play combines lyrical fireworks with exhilarating live music.
“OUTSTANDING” ★★★★★ The Public Reviews
Tempest has been described as “one of the most exciting young writers working in Britain today.” (The Huffington Post). Earlier in 2013, 26-year old Kate became the first person under 40 to win the Ted Hughes Award for innovation in poetry, winning the accolade for her work BRAND NEW ANCIENTS – an hour story set to an orchestral backing.
When Tempest started writing in her mid-teens, she would push herself to perform anywhere – at grime and hip-hop nights and on the night bus home. Tempest recently performed to female inmates in Holloway prison, an experience that inspired HOPELESSLY DEVOTED, as she explains:
“I wanted to connect with these women. And I felt this familiar fire that I sued to feel when I was rapping – this eagerness and this sense of importance of telling and being heard.”
