Electrolyte presented by Wildcard Theatre

Tour supported by house

A gig-theatre hybrid exploring mental health in the modern age.

Jessie’s sick of Leeds. A city she thought she would never leave. But the aimlessness of the people she once believed she would always need is suffocating.

Wondering whether she’s had enough, in a dirty nightclub not too far off, Jessie’s blinded by the light of Allie Touch, a singer-songwriter with a taste for big ambitions, amongst some other stuff.

Feeling rough in the five in the morning sunlight, Jessie’s sight is fixed on the path that Allie lights and like a moth to a flame in the night, she ignites.

Electrolyte is a multi-award-winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from “lasts of sound to lyrical sweetness” (The Scotsman), this production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.

Electrolyte is the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award, The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018.

“ This is what it must have felt like when audiences first watched Shakespeare”    

“A dazzling, fast-paced production”

“ Loud, liberating… exuberant”
