SEArED in association with Arcola presents
BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE by Dennis Potter
Directed by Amelia Sears
Cast includes Rupert Friend
The first ever major London revival of Dennis Potter’s most controversial play. Renowned for being banned by the BBC in 1976, Brimstone and Treacle's glimpse into middle-class suburban paranoia, xenophobia and insularity is as revealing and relevant today as it was then.
With Potter’s characteristic black humour, combining shocking realism with a surreal theatricality, Brimstone and Treacle is a twisted allegory about fear, faith, morality, and the incomprehensible randomness of good and evil.
Dennis Potter is best known for his works: The Singing Detective, Pennies from Heaven, Lipstick on your Collar and Blue Remembered Hills.
Cast includes Rupert Friend (Young Victoria, Pride and Prejudice, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Cheri).
