A disillusioned, 23-year old Jehovah’s Witness, is kicked out of the controlling cult. He lands on the ecstasy-fuelled dance floors of 90’s clubland. Shunned by his family, and everyone that he knows, he is in not prepared for what lies ahead.
In 1976 Sean’s world changes forever. He is dragged into a doomsday cult, by parents who are struggling to find their own identities. He and his family are brainwashed into believing the end of the world is nigh. The route to salvation is not as it seems...
One Foot In The Rave is the award-winning debut verse play from performance poet Alexander Rhodes. The show is an energetic mix of agony and total ecstasy. Set to a backdrop of remixed club classics, Alexander moves effortlessly between the characters and scenes, delivering the chemical highs and pitiful lows.
Expect: Wry observations, chemically induced inspirations and twisted logic.
Went to see #OneFootInTheRave by @joineduppoetry yesterday and it was so brilliant! A witty, warm, moving and hilariously self-aware roller-coaster of a story - go & check it out!

Alexander Rhodes gave a spirited performance at Ledbury Poetry Slam, full of warmth, good humour and clever observations. He went down a storm with the packed audience who appreciated his laid-back, friendly approach and sharp delivery. He has the rare skill to blend comedy and poignancy to leave people laughing and thinking at the same time. His appearance at Ledbury Poetry Slam demonstrated to a whole new audience why he is highly regarded as a poet and performer on the national stage.

A poetic force to be reckoned with. A cracking host who puts everyone at ease, he flits comfortably between welcoming event organiser and reliably powerful performer.
