Pen Ultimate

A day on the Tiles

Take a trip to a seedy underworld where gangsters, high rollers and con-men compete in a high-stakes Scrabble game to end them all. Meshing tightly woven wordplay with send-ups of heist, caper and kung fu films, A Day On The Tiles is a kinetic tale of violence, revenge and Devonshire cream teas.

With dramaturgy from the sharpened pen of legendary US Hip Hop Theatre innovator Will Power and directed by Montserrat Gili, A Day On The Tiles is a groundbreaking combination of spoken word and theatre.

With artistic support from Contact’s Artisitic Director Baba Israel.
