“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.

Instead, the room is catapulted into farcical chaos as a stern Guardian critic exposes the public disgrace that brought down lead-actor and Emmerdale-star, Seba...

  • The Ruling Class

    Tue 14 - Sat 18 May

    A 1960s manor living room is flooded with light. Surrounded by Victorian values, the audience is suddenly greeted by a magnanimous hippy – floating and grazing around the upper-classes living beyond the age in which they belong. He’s likeable, witty, and carefree. He also thinks he’s the Lord God reincarnate. The Ruling Class is a dark, witty, and satirical comedy that probes the hypocri...
