Best dinosaur-themed punk band you’ve never heard of…

Henry Raby

That’s enough to get us hooked!

Whatever Happened to Vandal Raptor? is the brand new show by Punk poet, theatre-maker and play-wright, Henry Raby.

Part of York Literature Festival, you can see it at York Theatre Royal on the 30th & 31st March 2017.

This is what York Theatre Royal has to say about it…

“Vandal Raptor were the greatest 4-piece dinosaur-themed punk band you’ve never heard of. Snarling through songs and snapping strings, they sang about changing the world…until they broke up.

Our story finds them 10 years later accidentally reunited in their old stomping ground. Has the fire for DIY and protest music been extinguished, or still burning bright?

40 years after the 1970s explosion of punk, our story uses poetry, live music and raw story-telling to prove rebellion is far from extinct”.

This is one show not to be missed!

Henry was one of the first local poets that we programmed for Release the Hounds so we’ll always have a special soft spot for him! He has done gigs under the RtH banner at Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre and also Blind Jacks in Knaresborough.

RtH Artistic Director Stef Jones said that Mark Grist hit the nail on the head when he said “Henry Raby smashes it every time I see him”- Mark Grist, Dead Poets & Rogue Teacher
