“Newcastle, London, America. You can go anywhere, it’s still the same old shit. People just getting by, in any way they know how. But I tell you what they don’t have, they don’t have a £1 Thursday!”
17 year olds Jen and Stacey are best friends. Since forever.
Stacey always dreamed of being a dancer. And she’s actually got the talent for it. Only her school career advisor hasn’t even been to London, let alone heard of Urdang.
Jen is smart. Like Oxbridge smart. But all ‘smart’ gives her is the ability to see that there’s no use trying to change the story prewritten for her, growing up in an underfunded and forgotten Bradford in the 2010s.
They only have one place they can escape to… Club Ocean on a Thursday night.
Club Ocean is more than just perverts and sticky floors. It’s Freedom. Freedom from controlling boyfriends, menopausal mums and the dreaded finality of having to leave school. The Freedom to get messy, peel themselves off pavements, and wake up knowing they’d pulled someone last night and hoping they were at least a 6 out of 10.
A beautiful and hilarious coming of age story, £1 Thursdays captures and celebrates the trials and tribulations of what it means to be young, Northern and working class, when for one Vodka-blurred second, you’re allowed to forget everything else. And just DANCE…
