Entertainment / Mon 13th May 2024 at 07:27am

COST of living, tax hikes, joblessness, political recklessness, potential homelessness! I mean bloody hell, it costs seven pounds fifty for a pint. What’s keeping you here?!” ‘Bogging-off from Blighty’. 

A satirical, political comedy exploring the impact of power on community; compressing British politics down to four clueless Uni-Grads. After discovering an unclaimed island in the English Channel, four flat-mates journey from their run-down London flat, to their new nation of ‘Newbrit-on-Sea’; promising to create their own country, free from the problems they had left behind. 

But as complications arise, factions form and friendship blurs with politics: the group discovers that the freedom of running your own country might not be all it’s cracked up to be. 

The Harlow Playhouse Practitioners Programme presents the Harlow Community Arts Festival. Six emerging theatre companies from the local or surrounding area showcase new-writing, all on the brief of ‘Community’.
