------------

“You can say it. You can be cross. You might, might even go as far as to say you.... that you were angry.

Are you angry?”

------------

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

As a special police squad goes down the rabbit hole in chase of the home-grown terrorists both groups are forced to look in the mirror and question their own ideologies; the rules have changed. An uprising has begun. No one is exempt.

Performed in a shared community space by an independent collective of artists, the New Zealand premiere of James Graham's highly acclaimed thriller lures you into a frenzied world of poor theatre and hard boiled detectives. Based on the true story of The Angry Brigade, come join us on the anarchistic outskirts.

------------

In a world where we often feel isolated, lonely and unsupported by the constructs our upbringings told us we could lean on, what ideology do we look to for relief?

We are rolling into our mid-twenties, looking for jobs, for love, for a home – and yet we struggle in a crushed job market. A house of our own is forever out of reach. We live lives neither held by a system, nor in political revolt.

So this play is our small act of rebellion, our attempt to wake ourselves up, to chase the ideals of the Angry Brigade. Come, join our revolution, join the war that will not be fought with bombs but with ideas.
