      Tracey Thorn - Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia

      The Traverse Theatre is a Wheelchair accessible venue - full details on accessibility are available here.‘I devoured Another Planet. Thorn’s intimate reflections on teenage angst, motherhood, panic attacks, family and music are so moving and insightful, and written with wit and sensitivity’ - COSEY FANNI TUTTI  Announcing an early highlight of 2019 : the phenomenally talented Tracey Thorn launches the latest installement of her memoirs with us! Whether you know her as a celebrated singer-songwriter, half of the award-winning duo Everything But The Girl or the best-selling author of Naked at the Albert Hall and Bedsit Disco Queen you'll love this latest venture. With Thorn's trademark wit and insight, Another Planet reconsiders the greenbelt post-war dream so many artists have mocked, and so many artists have come from. In a 1970s commuter town, Tracey Thorn’s teenage life was forged from what failed to happen. Her diaries were packed with entries about not buying things, not going to the disco, the school coach not arriving. Before she was a bestselling musician and writer, Tracey Thorn was a typical teenager: bored and cynical, despairing of her aspirational parents. Her only comfort came from house parties, Meaningful Conversations, and the female pop icons who hinted at a new kind of living. Returning more than three decades later to Brookmans Park, scene of her childhood, Thorn takes us beyond the bus shelters and pub car parks, the utopian cul-de-sacs, the train to Potters Bar and the weekly discos, to the parents who wanted so much for their children, the children who wanted none of it.  ‘I adored this. Wise, tender, beautifully observed, deadly funny. A green belt memoir classic’ - MAX PORTER **Doors OPEN at 18:30, event starts at 7pm SHARP!**
