This show, produced by The Flanagan Collective, runs on just three nights, Tuesday to Thursday, February 4-6. Tickets for the show are just £10.

Babylon is a show about kings and queens and revolutions. It’s about the things we love, the things we should hold tighter to every day.

“It’s a show full of folk music, of drinking and dancing, of singing with arms wrapped around strangers shoulders. Came raise a glass with us,” says the theatre’s blurb.

The Flanagan Collective was set up in 2010 by Alexander Wright (co-artistic director of Belt Up Theatre) and has produced two critically acclaimed musicals – Some Small Love Story and Beulah – and produced two critically acclaimed solo shows – Githa and The Bridge That Tom Built. They run the unique and boutique Little Festival Of Everything as well as programming work across pubs and non-performances spaces. In 2012 they were nominated for an Emerging Company Total Theatre Award.

Babylon was originally developed with The Fauconberg Arms, Derby Theatre and Greenwich Theatre across 2013.
