TALK PROPA

A truly northern fuck you to the southern elite.

Two lasses from across the North™ of England take on the stereotypes they are constantly reduced to (with a cuppa tea in hand of course).
 

Southerners, buckle up.

Blending comedy and audience interaction with innovative video design and movement, TALK PROPA radically deconstructs the concept of a ‘generic northern accent’. 

 

A spotlight on the intersection of class, accent and gender prejudice against northern women both on and off stage. 

Don’t be mardy - see yah there, pet.
