Jessie's sick of Leeds,  A city she thought she would never leave. But the aimlessness of the people she once believed she would always need  is suffocating.  Wondering whether she's had enough,  in a dirty nightclub not too far off, Jessie's blinded by the light of Allie Touch a singer/songwriter with a taste for big ambition,  amongst some other stuff. Feeling rough in the five in the morning half light, Jessie's sight is fixed on the path that Allie writes, and like a moth to a flame in the night she ignites.

Electrolyte is a multi-award-winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from 'blasts of sound to lyrical sweetness' (***** The Scotsman), this 'unstoppable' (***** To Do List) production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.
