Anthea is a woman on the edge, out of work, and in arrears. When she gets mixed up in a riot at the local supermarket, she seizes the opportunity to stock her empty cupboards and those of her friend, Maggie.
But how will they hide the loot from their lawabiding husbands? What will they tell the police?
When the going gets tough Anthea’s anarchic imagination takes over, with a fantastical, farcical answer for everything…
Conrad Nelson directs Dario Fo’s classic comedy, a fast and furious political satire on the plight of the working poor, transposed to Brexit Britain.
Age guidance: 12+
"...rarely can Dario Fo's classic have stirred so much unhibited audience laughter. This adaptation is an absolute riot. A farce for the soul." The Stage (Accidental Death of an Anarchist)
