1492. Basel. In a flash of inspiration the town council summons the city’s ‘fools’. Outcasts, handicapped, homosexuals and subversives are herded onto a ship with neither sail nor oar and floated down the Rhine into permanent exile. Many centuries later in present day Britain, the government selects a group of long-term unemployed, bundles them onto a bus and drives them deep into the unknown to work for their dole.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
