Young anarchists try to bring down the Establishment. The police try to stop them. Push to the left, push to the right. Push far enough and you’ll be surprised who you’ll meet. Based on real events in 1970s Britain, The Angry Brigade is a thrilling, funny, theatrical explosion of two halves. Be ready for one of the most compelling plays in Third Rail’s history.
It’s a fast-moving play delivered with charismatic performances by a cast of four actors who hurtle through an array of characters that range from absurdly hilarious to deeply compelling…What makes The Angry Brigade (and many of Third Rail’s other productions this season) so supremely imaginative is the creative team’s willingness to try to comprehend something simply for the purpose of experiential discovery.
