Birmingham-based Banner Theatre has put together a hard-hitting music and multimedia show called Fighting the Cuts.

It is a powerful video ballad that mixes interviews with music, song and drama. It features public sector workers, service users and students talking about the impact of cuts.

With songs like “Tax Dodger” and “Bankers’ Song” the show clearly lays the blame for the current crisis where it belongs. “We’re Not Going Back” and “Rise Up” point the way forward.

The show is available for booking and Banner Theatre is keen to build links with anti-cuts groups, trade unions and other campaigners.
