tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ!

Sold out

'We're artists with integrity! We ain't for sale! You can't buy us!?'

In 1977 when Punk was at its height, Billy Abortion's bandmates left him bleeding to death in a Copenhagen hotel room. In 2007 Billy is back from the dead and stacking shelves. There was no way tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ! would ever reform. Until now?

30 years on from their notorious split, an American corporation wants to pay the band a small fortune for their punk anthem Plastic People, but everyone has to be in on the deal. So how much will it take for the angriest man in music to sell out?

tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ! is Mike Packer's third play for the Bush Theatre, following A CARPET, A PONY AND A MONKEY (2002) and CARD BOYS (1999).

Ambreen Razia: ‘Show the West the pain they’ve caused…the colonial trauma inflicted on your ancestors’

Monday – ‘I hid his firearms’ she said through her chestnut eyes, her finger tips lightly touching one another, blonde highlights through her Pakistani hair, each strand telling me who she used to be. ‘This country’s failed me’, her words bouncing off her majesty’s walls, I sit opposite her with my name, she sits opposite…

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…
