With design by Jacob Hughes, lighting by Anna Watson, sound by Tony Gayle and choreography by Aaron Sillis.

Poet in da Corner the album will be released on Friday 31 January 2020 on Accidental Records in partnership with the Royal Court Theatre.

Whilst the album is made up from songs from the stage show it is more than simply a soundtrack release, with the tracks having been re-edited and mastered to produce an album that very much stands in its own right as one of the most compelling grime records of today.

The release will be made available as a limited edition USB keychain as well as across all streaming and download stores.

Poet in da Corner was originally co-produced by 14-18 NOW and the Royal Court Theatre, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, in association with Nottingham Playhouse and Curve.
