This weekend a brand-new production of Gareth Farr’s Bruntwood Prize winning play BRITANNIA WAVES THE RULES, directed by Dan Bird, opens in our Swan Street Studio before beginning a tour to community venues across the region. Supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund this production will visit community theatres, church halls and schools across the North West and North East and builds on existing relationships made during the 2014 tour of BLACK ROSES: THE KILLING OF SOPHIE LANCASTER as well as creating exciting partnerships with new venues.

WE FIGHT. WE WIN. WE BURN YOUR LAND.


The Guardian
Carl Jackson doesn't fit in at home. When he joins the army, he sees it as a chance to escape the grim reality of life.

But it doesn’t matter where he runs to, or how hard or how fast – there are too many battles for him to win them all. And when Carl comes home, it’s not as a hero but a changed man.

Fast, furious and filled with rage, this play is a scream of protest at the state of the world.
