With a Little Bit of Luck – 9 June (captioned)

It’s 2001. Garage is the anthem of the UK. Nadia feels like it’s her time to shine.

A hot summer’s night of love promises endless possibilities. Swept up in drinking, dancing, hope, ambition, lust, greed… Nadia will make decisions that will determine the rest of her life.

Rhythmically underscored by your favourite UK Garage bangers. This is theatre you can rave to.

Transport back to a time of smoke-filled clubs with sticky floors and dancing with a WKD in your hand. Here are the tunes of your youth.

Award-winning writer and poet Sabrina Mahfouz explores the legacy of a cultural movement that defined the hopes of a generation in a “generous, joyous and lyrical collision of gig and theatre” (★★★★ The Stage).

With a Little Bit of Luck returns to The Last Word festival following ★★★★ reviews in 2016. This time, legendary Garage duo DJ Luck and MC NeatMighty Moe (from the Heartless Crew) and DJ Steady join to help turn the iconic Roundhouse stage into a full-on garage rave.
