Political Theatre | Sing yer heart out for the lads | Roy Williams | LCM

Roy Williams’s fierce and excoriating portrait of British racism is set in a south-east London pub, during the 2000 England vs. Germany match. As England loses again, their supporters in The King George lose it too – and with this, patriotism becomes unapologetic racism.

Set and Costume Design: Bettina John
Directed by: Paul Harvard
Venue: Lawrence Hall

The set design for this political piece of theatre springs from the idea of a claustrophobic stage set up. An exterior of an english pub has been reduced to just a skeleton,  however the interior is strangely real. Its protagonists do everything to preserve what’s within those walls: a crumbling nationalist England.

Cast: Louis Sparks, Deanna Arthur, Daisy Walsh, Sylvester Akinrolabu, Toby Ashbourne, Elmi Elmi, Ali Zayn, Davy Bell, Harry Llewellyn, Ryan Daniel-Gerrard, McCauley Fisher, Charlie Ayres, Andrew D’Alton, Bony Fonseca, Azure Phoenix
