We are delighted to welcome to Quarterhouse a Paines Plough Production in association with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse.
The Great British Bulldog has been usurped by snarling hybrids. The bowler hat has morphed into a hoodie. The culture of polite society is now a culture of blame and hatred as our land of hope and glory is torn into extremes.
Fusing theatre, comedy, poetry and tub-thumping tunes, two actors play a host of characters in an excoriating inquisition into broken Britain. This fast paced comedy hurtles through the dilapidated attractions of noble old Blighty exposing the millions of tiny volcanoes bubbling up through our green and pleasant land.
Paines Plough is an award-winning nationally and internationally renowned theatre company specialising since 1974 in commissioning, producing and touring new plays and helping playwrights develop their craft. Artistic Director, James Grieve, is an old Folkestonian and is delighted to be showing this work in his home town.
Originally co-commissioned by Paines Plough and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse.
