Pen-ultimate, Contact and The Albany present A Night On The Tiles
Welcome to a seedy spoken-word underworld where gangsters, high-rollers and con-men compete in the high stakes Scrabble game to end them all.

Hotly tipped theatre collective Pen-ultimate perform at The Albany, with a bigger and bolder re-imagining of their debut sell out show, A Night On The Tiles. An electric mix of tightly woven wordplay and send ups of heist, caper and kung fu movies, A Night On The Tiles is a Tarantino-esque tale of revenge, murder and Devonshire cream teas.

Directed by Montserrat Gili (Dende Collective) and with dramaturgy from US hip-hop pioneer Will Power A Night On The Tiles is a unique and pioneering combination of spoken word, theatre and screw-ball comedy. Heralded in The Sunday Times as a company to watch in 2010 Pen-ultimate is a diverse collective of nationally and internationally recognised poets, actors, MCs and playwrights – Ben Mellor, Ali Gadema (aka Frisko Dan), Niven Ganner, Samira Arhin-Acquaah (aka Lucidity) and Martin Stannage (aka Visceral).

Pen-ultimate first worked together as part of Contact's Young Actors Company. They made their debut as a company at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival and have since performed in theatres and festivals

A Night On The Tiles is their first full-scale production.

Time: 7.30pm
Address: The Albany, Douglas Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AG
