A Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth production

A bold new play by James Graham, writer of sell-out smash hits This House (Royal National Theatre) and Privacy (Donmar Warehouse).

“Its government has declared a vicious class war.

A one-sided war…

We have started to fight back…

…with bombs.”

Against a backdrop of Tory cuts, high unemployment and the deregulated economy of 1970s Britain, a young urban guerrilla group mobilises: The Angry Brigade.

Their targets: MPs. Embassies. Police. Pageant Queens.

A world of order shattered by anarchy; the rules have changed. An uprising has begun. No one is exempt.

 

This is a past event
“A timeless depiction of young people agitating against a world that appears to exclude them.”
The Times
“Our brightest political playwright.”
Evening Standard
“An explosive account of idealogical war”
The Guardian
“Hits the heart as much as it hits the head.”
Londonist
