To close Substance Hull’s legendary New Adelphi Club will play host to a double bill of new writing featuring Hull’s critically acclaimed Pub Corner Poets and a new play written and partly performed by Bill Drummond.

Pub Corner Poets will present their new work Artis & Sol, an absurdist play where two blokes sit in a boat and hate each other for an hour. The debut play by Emma Phimister, Artis & Sol explores comedy, misery and the bits in between and asks why the fuck we’d do this to ourselves?

In the second half of the double bill artist Bill Drummond presents a new work ‘Your Darkest Thought’ A three act play by Tenzing Scott Brown.

Inspired by his time in Hull during Where Are We Now? Festival earlier in the year, Bill has been back to the city a number of times in order to shine shoes on Beverley Road in exchange for your darkest thoughts. This is the story of what happened performed by actor and activist Tam Dean Burn as Bill Drummond and featuring the writer himself.
