Welcome to Hoke’s Bluff.
The sun always shines, the grass is always watered and green, the roads are wide and the cars seat three in the front. It never rains and all the kids have straight teeth. Their parents are firm but loving, and when they get things wrong they admit it, and say they’re sorry. Yep, Hoke’s Bluff is pretty ordinary. Could be anywhere, really. Just another town.
With a wistful yearning for a world that never really existed, Hoke’s Bluff uses high school storylines, inspiring locker room speeches and sentimentality to tell an underdog story that’s been told a million times before, shifting and re-arranging the trite conventions and narratives of American teen movies to talk about what it means to be a winner on the inside.
This is the sixth project to be Triggered@Warwick
China Plate will host an exchange with the company following the performance so that, as an audience, you can help shape the future of this exciting new show. Be there as another artistic adventure begins at Warwick Arts Centre.
