Paris, 1892. If you’re not rich, things look bleak. Political bombings and police crackdowns tear the city apart. Out of this carnage steps Emile Henry, a young anarchist preparing his war against the State. But when he hears strange mumblings from the future, madness beckons… Dead White Anarchists_ is a solo theatre show – a Molotov cocktail of radical history lesson, spoken word and sci-fi crime thriller. It’s a reflection on a bloody past and a chaotic present, but always holding hope for the future. Written and performed by Paul Case Directed by Emily Ingram
“A throwback to when political theatre meant the exploration of grand universal ideas… the piece doesn’t flinch. Four stars” – The Wee Review
PLUS spoken word open mic! Handful of slots available, five minutes each, sign up on the night.
