  • Cast and creatives
  • Venue details
Against a backdrop of Tory cuts, high unemployment and the deregulated economy of 1970's Britain, a young urban guerrilla group mobilises: The Angry Brigade.

Their targets: MPs. Embassies. Police. Pageant Queens.

A world of order is shattered by anarchy. The rules have changed. An uprising has begun. No one is exempt as a special police squad hunt the home-grown terrorists.

James Graham's heart-stopping thriller lures us into a frenzied world that looks much like our own.
 

Bush Theatre [Fringe,Off West End]

The Bush itself is closed for refurbishment, but continues to programme shows locally.

“Challenging but rewarding... gives two polar-opposite perspectives on the early 1970s English anarchist group the Angry Brigade.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Marvellously retro... thrillingly topical... Compassionate and serious and dryly funny and fascinating... It’s brilliant. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“The laughs are all in one half, and the feeling in the other... A first rate play preceded by its eccentric b-movie. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Better on paper than in practice... Still, the story grips and the actors are given plenty of licence... Chanda is superb. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“As the collision between the forces of order and disorder approaches, Graham... explores the similarities in their motivations. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Neither police procedures nor anarchists’ motives are explored in any depth...Grieve’s clumsy direction compounds the problem. ”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“A dull, incomprehensible two and a half hours. ”

Patrick Marmion (Time Out, Daily Mail)
