Selected in 2018 by Carol Ann Duffy as part of the Laureate's Choice Collection.


Troupers pays tribute to not only the stars of Music Hall and Variety, but also the forgotten artistes who were beloved in their time by the nation. Acts like Macauley’s Leaping Infants, The Bryn Pugh Sponge Dancers, Willy Netta’s Singing Jockeys and many more are revived to be celebrated again. We see the lives they lived, the routines they performed, and their relevance to us all, as people, today.
