“This show will shake you to the core. Go see it!” Theatrelab, Bath Fringe 2019
Part gig, part play and part all-means-of-production-seizing musical. This irreverent reinvention of John Reed's eyewitness account of 1917 mixes protest songs with spoken word, satire with magic tricks and today's most radical politics with the events of a century ago.
Russia 1917 and American writers John Reed and Louise Bryant find themselves in Petrograd on the eve of revolution. Join them as they rub shoulders with Trotsky and Lenin, stumble through debates and near-death experiences, and discover what they are willing to sacrifice for their beliefs.
Created to celebrate 100th anniversary of the book's publication, this new cabaret-play adaptation is a funny an inspiring story of people power and taking a stand.
For anyone who has ever wanted to change the world.
Doors 6.30pm. Show starts 7pm. Latecomers may not be admitted. 18+
