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).

Work Experience Diary | Myla “I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect”

Myla took part in a week of work experience at the Bush.
