Jubilee
  • West End

Faith in the establishment collapsing everywhere. The far-right on the march. Culture wars and random violence - all decked out in red, white and blue. But a spirit of anarchy hangs in the air, the desire to burn it all down and start over&

THIS CAN ONLY BE 1977& RIGHT?

Derek Jarman's iconic film captured punk at its giddy height: a riot of music, DIY fashion, and every kind of sex - with a little pyromania thrown in. Now, forty years on, this new stage adaptation of Jubilee remixes it for the social and political turmoil of 2017. Centred around a marauding girl gang on a killing spree and a time-travelling Queen Elizabeth I, it's a story of what happens when creativity and nihilism collide.

Featuring a soundtrack to die (horribly) for, and with a cast led by one of the film's original cast members, legendary punk warrior Toyah Willcox, Jubilee is a free-spirited, gloriously rude, take-no-prisoners blast of a show, for young punks, old punks, and anyone who's ever wanted to set the world on fire.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
