Big Society!

Issue No. 2287

Comedian Phill Jupitus has joined left wing theatre company Red Ladder for a timely attack on David Cameron’s “big society”.

The play is set a century ago at the City Varieties theatre, where this performance takes place.

The country is run by arrogant public school boys with contempt for the poor.

And the corrupt government of millionaires is backed up by a crooked press, in this case the “Double Standards” newspaper.

Expect a few bolshy songs too—Leeds anarchist band Chumbawamba provides the music.

Big Society!
City Varieties, Swan Street, Leeds
until 4 February
