A play that plunges into youth subculture from a working class migrant perspective. Alex Kryiakou may be the writer of Spoken Beat (a new wave of performance writing), but she has little control over the process and isn't sure where she wants to take it. The only control she has is with her three internal friends, Red, Green and Blue, who give her that clap on the back even though she might be heading in the wrong direction. When these internal voices become confused with her friends, Jordi, Greg and Soozze, Alex is so affected that she can't find her true direction. The play is set in both the "real" world, and the world of Alex's emotions and imaginings, and makes strong use of music and spoken beat performance.
