19 October & 14 – 16 November 2014
Early Days (of a better nation) premieres at Oval House as part of UK Parliament Week 2014 and previews at KCL’s Arts & Humanities Festival.
The war is over and the nation lies in ruins. You and your fellow survivors must build the beginnings of a new country. What are the rules you’re going to live by? And can you avoid the mistakes of the past?
A piece of interactive theatre for a playing audience, Early Days (of a better nation) explores the possibilities of nationhood and democracy, drawing inspiration from the 2011 England riots, Arab Spring, Iceland’s crowd-sourced constitution and the rise (and fall) of Occupy.
