They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
Sat 17 Nov 18
Director: Conrad Nelson
A Northern Broadsides and York Theatre Royal Co-Production
Anthea is a woman on the edge, out of work, and in arrears. When she gets mixed up in a riot at the local supermarket, she seizes the opportunity to stock her empty cupboards and those of her friend, Maggie.
But how will they hide the loot from their law-abiding husbands?
What will they tell the police?
When the going gets tough Anthea’s anarchic imagination takes over, with a fantastical, farcical answer for everything…
Conrad Nelson directs Deborah McAndrew’s adaptation of Dario Fo’s classic comedy for Northern Broadsides, a fast and furious political satire on the plight of the working poor, transposed to Brexit Britain.
‘Fast, furious and very funny, this is farce with fire in its belly’
