A play for anyone that's ever been a dick on the dance floor.

A wedding. A free bar. A blast from the past. G and Kayla's lives are a mess but tonight they're determined to Have It Large. As their veins course with adrenaline and cheap prosecco, we follow them on an epic journey through thirty years of pop.

Can the DJ save them as they become Dancing Queens, reliving their Teenage Dream, Staying Out For The Summer and Spicing Up Their Lives? Pop makes promises it can't keep, and soon they'll discover they have more in common than their taste in tunes.  

Anna Jordan's play Pop Music is an emotionally contagious rollercoaster. It premiered at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in September 2018 (previews at Latitude Festival, July 2018), produced by Paines Plough and Birmingham Repertory Theatre in association with Latitude Festival, followed by a tour.

This edition also includes Anna Jordan's short play Closer to God, which received the Overall Winner and Audience Choice Awards when it was premiered at the inaugural OffCut Festival in 2009.

Extra Content: a Spotify playlist is available for Pop Music, compiled by Anna Jordan. Listen to it here.
