A Surreal Satire comes to the Corn Exchange
Another England, a brand new production written by award-winning playwright and director Vici Wreford-Sinnott, comes to the Corn Exchange Newbury on Thursday 4 July.
Set in a near-distant future, England 2024, Another England follows the characters of Rat and Murphy, two unlikely companions who, running for their lives, are thrown together as they take refuge in an empty house.
Murphy, a 55 year old veteran of the welfare state, and Rat, who believes she can change the world, are at opposite ends of the political divide and would normally go to the ends of the earth to avoid each other. They are both disabled people with a rich sense of their own identity and belonging. The two compete for the top spot in this underground world, where a series of games unfold as they decide who must stay and who must go.
Another England is written and directed by equality strategist Vici Wreford-Sinnott, who has worked in theatre and Disability Arts for 27 years and has carved a successful career in ground-breaking theatre.
