The Chaos That Has Been and Will No Doubt Return

Written by Sam Edmunds

"If this town gave out a collective breath of exhaustion, buildings would shake across the whole of England."


Two best mates. One HUGE party. Luton pinned by austerity. An evening of noughties bangers and shots of shitty gin mixed with the chaos of violence. A night to remember!


Winners of the 2022 Untapped Award, Chalk Line presents The Chaos That Has Been and Will No Doubt Return.


Packed with swagger, it hurls at a rapid pace with linguistic vigour and unfolds in real time. It's a tapestry of violence and joy parading through Luton.
