“A nation that devours another will one day devour itself”
Set when The Great Devouring comes home, England & Son is a one-man play written specifically for the award-winning political comedian Mark Thomas by award-winning playwright Ed Edwards (The Political History of Smack and Crack, Paines Plough’s Roundabout, Soho and UK tour).
This is the first play Mark has ever performed in that he has not written himself. With some deep, dark laughs-and some deep, dark love-along the way, England & Son emerges from characters Mark knew in his childhood and Ed’s lived experience in jail.
Prepare for Mark to take you on a kaleidoscopic odyssey where disaster capitalism, empire, stolen youth and stolen wealth merge into the simple tale of a working-class boy who just wants his dad to smile at him.
A play written by Ed Edwards and directed by Cressida Brown
