I Won't Make It On My Own

An evening of music, storytelling and performance about making and celebrating both the big and small things that wouldn’t exist if we hadn’t created them!

05 October, 2017 - 07 October, 2017


    NST's Laboratory Creative Associates present

    I Won't Make It On My Own

    Thursday 5 October - Saturday 7 October

    Post Show Q+A: Oct 5

    In a bright pink house, in the middle of nowhere, plumbed only with saltwater, three stories unfold.

    In 1925, a woman backtracks over her marriage to figure out what went wrong. 

    In 1983, a brother and sister debate the meaning behind a series of ever-worsening cakes. 

    In 2017, an artist goes on a desperate pilgrimage.

    An evening of music, storytelling, and performance for anyone who’s ever wondered how to make someone happy, how to make things last forever, or how to make something of themselves. Or simply how to make the perfect cup of tea.

    Take a seat. Have a drink. Make yourselves comfortable.


    All the creative team are current Laboratory Creative Associates.
