Billie Homeless Dies At The End

Billie Homeless was conceived as ‘an opera for found voices and instruments’ by writer Tom Kelly, and subsequently performed as a radio play on BBC Radio Four in 2016.

Now director Thomas Guthrie and designer Ruth Paton are working with MTFA to make Tom Kelly’s text the starting point for a biting, visceral and groundbreaking new opera, designed to raise awareness of the way we think about homelessness on our city streets.

A tough and resourceful teenage girl roams the cold city streets on the last night of her life. Breathtaking drama with an original score from electronic music pioneers Coldcut.
