I Am England: TPT, The egg, Bath
I Am England
Young People's Theatre
The egg, Bath
David Lane has devised this piece with the YPT team, creating a piece of theatre set in a brutal, depressing England rotten with decay and despair. Where Carys Beard's bleak design seems perfectly at home.

Using Shakespeare's Coriolanus as catalyst, the central character Marc is given a new identity by the spin doctor politicians and he has to face his friends and the disillusioned generation around him whilst attempting to stay true to his self.
The cast are committed and energetic with confident and engaging performances. Matthew Sterling as Marc is the one to be "immortalised in history forever" a returning soldier whose father died in allegedly heroic combat when he was but a child.
The politicians believe the best way to deal with the generation confronting them is to send them to war, making way for a new society who will not ask any questions.
There is an alarming relevance to much of the dialogue that sparks between those in charge, a great spin doctor from Lily Oliver – Cork and a rare glimpse of a politician with a conscience thanks to Joshua Forster.
Gritty, uncomfortable and thought provoking new writing; one hopes not prophetic.
