Where and when: 11th October, The Lion and Unicorn Theatre
What it’s all about… Three short, interlinking plays exploring the impact of social class on individual lives, set in the present day and an imagined near-future.
It is 2019 and Leanne is faced with a terrible choice if she wants to give her child a better life. Sixty years from now, a couple contend with the brutal outcome of a rigidly stratified society; while Sarah, in the third play, is driven towards making her own drastic protest against the dystopian world in which she lives. Inspired by real-life situations of social exclusion and inequality, Classified imagines what might happen if present class divisions are taken to the extreme. And, in our current climate of political instability and uncertainty, it asks whether some responses to injustice can ever be acceptable.
You’ll like it if… you like Black Mirror, Bandersnatch and enjoy thought-provoking drama, which entertains with great storylines and powerful acting.
You should see it because… Classified is a play for our time: in the current climate of political upheaval and uncertainty, it has never been more relevant.
Anything else we should know… Classified sold out at its premiere performance at Tristan Bates Theatre in March, and got a 4 star review and rave audience feedback – details on our website: https://looselybased.co.uk/
