A theatrical performance commemorating the 20th anniversary of a the Argyle Street squatter eviction in Norwich is being performed in the city this week.

The Street of Experience, written by Al Stokes with songs by Nick Morgan and arranged by Seb Fosdal, is being staged at The Garage, in Chapelfield North, from Thursday February 17 to Saturday February 19.

Multi-media elements of the show take the form of projected still images – original material produced during the life of the squat – and projected

onto a back screen as actors perform bullet-point moments of street's history in sketch form. There will also be a performance by the band Dreadhead.
