“You’re an octopus. All mixed up, like me. One leg something, and one leg something else.”

In a dystopian near-future, three women are called into a government office to be assessed for their ‘right to British life’. Sara looks kinda Asian, Scheherazade kinda Middle Eastern, and Sarah is kinda white and has no idea why she’s here.

Octopus is an anarchic new comedy about Brexit, bureaucracy, and the power of punk. Against modern anxieties about race, refugees, and terrorism, it is a funny and caustic look at what Britishness really means in the 21st century.
