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 fantastical imagination takes over, resulting in a farcical descent into absurdity.

Dario Fo’s classic comedy, relocated to a 2024 post-pandemic, post-Brexit Britain, is a timeless, fast and furious political satire on the enduring plight of the working poor.
