Rafe’s Dilemma celebrate literature, music and theatre. This young quartet brings together an eclectic mix of jazz, electronica and rock to tell stories of families on the edge. For this appearance they will feature some of the stories from Sheffield playwright Leo Butler from his short story Redundant premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2001 starring Lyndsey Marshal and directed by Dominic Cooke. Set in seventeen-year-old Lucy’s Sheffield council flat, the play follows a year in the promiscuous teenager’s life as she makes one disastrous choice after another. It is a dark, often humorous, examination of social poverty. "A tour de operatic jazzy-rocky-jazz. Beautifully developed since the original commissioned performance.
