SERVING COFFEE @ SIMS SUPERMARKET
West Footscray, it’s becoming gentrified. Townhouses eclipse the junky dens and drive immigrant elsewhere, until you pity them just like Bob Dylan. But in Simms supermarket, reality exists in a time-warp, where the ‘mad ones’, Jack Kerouac’s beloveds, sip strong coffee, made uncomfortably by the bookish punk, whose first love is a copy of Catcher in the Rye. Nothing happens in this play, except coffee, madness, literary references and begging (50 cent pieces only).
The Outcaste Weakly Poet Stage Show has powerful imagery that is real and confronting.
