WORLD PREMIERE. A Royal Exchange Theatre and Chris Goode & Company co-production
Faith in the establishment collapsing everywhere. The far right on the march. Culture wars and random violence – all decked out in red, white and blue. But a spirit of anarchy hangs in the air, the desire to burn it all down and start over…
Derek Jarman’s iconic film captured punk at its giddy height: a riot of music, DIY fashion, and every kind of sex – with a little pyromania thrown in. Now, forty years on, this new stage adaptation of JUBILEE remixes it for the social and political turmoil of 2017. Centred around a marauding girl gang on a killing spree and a time-travelling Queen Elizabeth I, it’s a story of what happens when creativity and nihilism collide.
Featuring a soundtrack to die (horribly) for, and with a cast led by one of the film’s original cast members, legendary punk warrior Toyah Willcox, JUBILEE is a free-spirited, gloriously rude, take-no-prisoners blast of a show, for young punks, old punks, and anyone who’s ever wanted to set the world on fire.
