Treacle and Brimstone with Rupert Friend -Arcola Theatre May 2nd

Brimstone and Treacle is a controversial play renowned for being banned by the BBC.  The play, according to the Arcola, is a “glimpse into suburban paranoia, xenophobia and insularity is as revealing and relevant today as it was in the 1970s.

“North London, Summer, 1977. As a nation prepares to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Silver Jubilee, a middle-class, middle-aged couple struggle to come to terms with the incapacitation of their daughter following a hit-and-run car accident. Out of nowhere, an apparently respectable young man arrives on their doorstep to change their lives forever…”

“A twisted allegory about fear, faith, morality, and the incomprehensible randomness of good and evil.”
