Sleeping Warrior Theatre Company & The Beacon Arts Centre presents
_Battery Park- the biggest band you’ve never heard of!_
Part theatre and part live music gig, Battery Park takes the audience on a journey back to the 90s, the Britpop era. When Tommy, a jaded, middle-aged guy from Greenock, his brother Ed, their best pal Biffy and a private school girl, Robyn, created the band, they were really going places and getting ready for the biggest gig of their lives. Tommy’s nostalgic reminiscing takes us back to the band members small town Greenock lives and how their big time dreams nearly, so so nearly, became reality with a support gig for Oasis at the Barrowland Ballroom. From broken dreams to broken hearts, it is a story that is funny and heart breaking in equal measure.It's gritty, it's loud, it's definitely not a musical and it's very Scottish! With music from a brilliant live band playing Battery Park’s original songs.
