Bangers

Written by Danusia Samal

Directed by Chris Sonnex

Smash hit Bangers is back to continue the party with an exhilarating night of original music, lyrical storytelling, and pure UK garage vibes.

It’s club night and the tracks are spinning. Two headliners crossfade between stories of love, sex, and the power of music – set against a backdrop of precarious lives in urban London.

Featuring original tracks inspired by early noughties and present-day R&B and Garage, Bangers follows the highs and lows of two strangers struggling with their own pasts, while hurtling towards the future.

This 5* Edinburgh smash hit is back to continue the party with an exhilarating night of original music, lyrical storytelling, and pure UK garage vibes. How do the bangers we grew up listening to shape who we are today?
