That open mic, stands there, so tempting – A chance to stand up for yourself and whisper or shout – Telling the world what it’s all about – If only you could get over those barriers in the way – Of you having your say- Preventing you from turning up on the day – So you stay in your room, locked away
Speakeasy? is the result of a collaboration between Cardboard Citizens, Lyrix Organix and the young people of Islington, working together to overcome our barriers to freedom of expression. Come on the day and have your say, and maybe show our main character the way. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7377 8948. Pay what you think it’s worth.
