Event Details

The Hippie Shakes is a new piece of gig theatre by award-winning playwright and director Frankie Regalia. It is a distinctly female journey of motherhood, survival, extreme poverty, bereavement, and inter-generational cycles of abuse. Inspired by a true story, The Hippie Shakes follows the fiery and funny Chickie as she struggles with her responsibilities as a mother, her cheating husband, and her desire for freedom. As her husband drags the family into the world of drug smuggling, the United States is going through historic changes. This play is steeped in the music of the era, featuring the sounds of Bob Dylan, Sonny & Cher, Santana, Janis Joplin, and more. The combination of live music, storytelling, and dark humor creates an intimate and memorable theatre experience.

This production is supported by Creative Scotland and the Bloomsbury Festival. This play is being produced by Sweaty Palms Productions. Sweaty Palms Productions was founded in 2017 and is comprised of a collective of international artists – Kalyl Kadri, Frankie Regalia, Ryan Lester, Sari Shrayteh & Helen Potter. It is an artistically cooperative company that is dedicated to bridging the connection between live performance & social change, attaching activism to all work. We are particularly focused on making a more accessible theatre industry through skill sharing, free workshops, and collaborative artistic practices. Our previous work includes Stoned, Stupid, & Stuck by Frankie Regalia and The Price of Iron adapted by the company, based on Bertolt Brecht.
