Teddy Boy

“Our dress is our answer to a dull world” Teddy Boy, Mecca Dance Hall, Tottenham, 1954.

1950’s post-bombsite Britain and there is a fashion style strutting out of the rubble.

A style set to shake the foundations of London society.
And a voice of a new and forgotten generation.

Everybody needs a suit. A good suit for dancing, fighting and “fun”.

Devised from interviews with the suit tailors, wearers and admirers of the 1950s, Teddy Boy is an explosive and physical exploration of an entire sub culture of South East London.

The story follows two characters, a boy and a girl, as they meet, fall in love and grow older together, whilst hanging on to their old Teddy Boy roots.
