Dustin swaps the suburbs for Soho streets in search of a fast track to fame, despite her health being in constant decline. It’ll take more than glitter, hope and the help of her unlikely new friendships to push through the constant pollution of Bubba’s Cafe.
If you are willing to face your fears, join Dustin in her fight to come of age.
“I’ll give you blood sweat and tears,
To produce leading ladies,
And hide you from my fears”
Pollution will take you on a musical journey exploring themes of mental health, chronic illness, LGBT and the dark areas of the performance industry. An emotional rollercoaster that will make you question your fears, cry and above all laugh at some of the absurdities we can’t help but love in this crazy world of showbusiness.
