Boombox by Sadie Hennessy


10th18th September 2016
Portland Bill Car Park
Portland Bill Rd

Boombox, is based on Sadie's teenage diary written in 1982, whilst she was a student at Weymouth Tech (or rather whilst she was supposed to be, as her attendance record shows a somewhat dismal 42%). Boombox tells the story of Sadie’s turbulent and surprisingly brief teen love affair with Portland-based Andi. Andi’s sister had a Reliant Robin that the teenagers would sit in (partly to stop it blowing over!).

Now it's your turn to experience a slice of teenage angst 80's style. The installation takes place in one of these classic cars and is accompanied by a soundtrack of music that the doomed lovers played on their ‘boomboxes’ in 1982.
