An election plays out on a television. A group of people come together in a darkened room. Maybe they’re friends or maybe strangers, but nobody wants to go to bed and nobody wants to go home.

After Party is an autobiographical performance of personal and political comedowns growing up in the aftermath of New Labour. It begins with the election party Annie’s Dad threw in 1997, and reimagines possible parties from the past, present and future, scored by a live DJ. It’s a show about late nights, early mornings, party politics and men who let you down. It’s about Britpop, Brexit, broken promises and 7am breakdowns. It’s about Tony Blair, Keir Starmer and all our Dads.

After Party takes on a new charged relevance in the year of a general election. What comes after the party, and what comes after that? You know what they say, things can only get worse…

A young woman in a turquoise short dress, green heeled boots and pink feather boa is photographed from above. She looks up to the camera with as impassive stare. She's surrounded by balloons, beer cans, a union jack flag and party blowers. She is holding a microphone in her left hand.
