About this show

A brilliant exposé of 1950s postwar England seen through the eyes of fading music hall performer, Archie Rice. As we veer from gin-soaked family arguments to Archie's increasingly desperate onstage turns, an England on a precipice is revealed, a nation unable to find its place in what is clearly a new world.
