No Strapline

They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!

Tue 6 Nov–Sat 10 Nov

By Dario Fo
A new adaptation by Deborah McAndrew Based on a translation by Jon Laskin and Michael Aquilante
Directed by Conrad Nelson

Anthea is a woman on the edge; out of work and in arrears. When she gets mixed up in a riot at the local supermarket, she seizes the opportunity to stock her empty cupboards and those of her friend, Maggie.

But how will they hide the loot from their law-abiding husbands? What will they tell the police?

When the going gets tough Anthea’s anarchic imagination takes over, with a fantastical, farcical answer for everything.

Conrad Nelson directs Dario Fo’s classic comedy; a fast and furious political satire on the plight of the working poor, transposed to Brexit Britain.
