“It’s not a crime against humanity, it’s much worse than that. It’s a crime … against disco.”
It’s Saturday night, and we’re going to paint the town red. One pub, one party, and three young men who are failing to escape their school-boy reputations; the geek, the gimp, and the bully. Join them on an epic quest to right their wrongs, find the perfect girl, and realise their greatest dream – getting the hell out.
On the twentieth anniversary of its first performance, Gary Owen’s (National Theatre, Royal Court) accomplished breakthrough play about masculinity in crisis remains urgent and provocative. This new imagining illuminates pertinent issues in contemporary society whilst harnessing the power of the original, through cleverly interwoven anecdotes and storytelling, all revolving around three men whose lives are defined by women.
Contains strong language, mentions of violence and sexual abuse.
This show is appropriate for ages 16+.
See the show in the Makerspace with limited in-person tickets, or watch live online via live-streaming.
