Synopsis

Set in coalition Britain amidst the crisis of capitalism, the UK government launches their flagship deception of ‘The Big Society’ from Liverpool. Connor, a disillusioned 15-year old sits alone in his cell.  He understands the lie: We’re not 'all in this together' like the man on the TV says.  Bullied and taunted by the other young offenders, Connor’s only hope is Linda, his Social Worker, who he has come to trust.  But what happens when Linda’s job is threatened, will she be able to find a way to care for him? When no one hears you shout…Sing.
A surreal and gritty musical set against the backdrop of the UK economic cuts. http://www.first-take.org/bigsocietythemusical
