    “Its government has declared a vicious class war.

    A one-sided war…

    We have started to fight back…

    …with bombs.”

    Against a backdrop of Tory cuts, high unemployment and the deregulated economy of 1970s Britain, a young urban guerrilla group mobilises: The Angry Brigade. Their targets: MPs. Embassies. Police. Pageant Queens.

    A world of order shattered by anarchy; the rules have changed. An uprising has begun. No one is exempt.

    The Angry Brigade opened at Theatre Royal Plymouth in September 2014 and transferred to the Bush Theatre in May 2015.

    tender, witty and – on the eve of an election – troublingly freighted with contemporary resonance
