They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
They Don’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!
Deborah McAndrew
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’
