How Can I Keep From Singing?

14 August 9.15pm
Drill Hall

“I try to write the most embarrassing thing I can think of.” – John Wieners

Some years ago, Chris Goode made a promise to himself: that in the summer after the death of his hero, folk-singer and activist Pete Seeger, he’d do a show in Edinburgh by way of tribute to Seeger’s pioneering example. A show about theatre and activism, and about what it means to stand up in the company of others. Above all, a show with songs.

Pete Seeger died in January, at the age of 94.

Chris can’t really sing.

Come and spend a tantalizingly unrehearsed one-night-only hour with “one of the geniuses of British theatre” (Guardian), while he thinks out loud about what it means to have – or not have – a voice.
