TOURING THE NORTH WEST

BRITANNIA WAVES THE RULES TOUR

"A job is a wage and a wage is a cage in a town like mine."

  • On Tour / External

A new, reimagining of the Bruntwood Prize winning BRITANNIA WAVES THE RULES goes on a tour of the North West, starting at the Royal Exchange Swan Street Studio.

Carl doesn't fit in at home. He doesn’t fit in anywhere. When he signs up for the army, he sees it as a chance to escape the grim reality of life in his hometown. But the army takes him to Afghanistan. And when he comes home, it’s not as a war hero but as a changed man.

“I want the audience to be taken on a ride with the play; it can be arresting and take an audience by the scruff of the neck.” Gareth Farr, Writer

BRITANNIA WAVES THE RULES won a Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2011. Gareth Farr has been working as a professional actor for the past eleven years, working with the RSC, The Royal Court, Young Vic and in the West End. He has been part of the Royal Court Writers Programme and Super Group and had worked developed and performed at The Green Room Studio Theatre in Manchester. Gareth has also written for the Tristan Bates Ignition scheme and has since been invited to develop his work for them into a full production. Britannia Waves the Rules is his first full length play.
