19th Feb, 8pm, Bar 74
For too long, Westminster has made decisions that old, white, right-wing, male Islanders should be deciding. We need to take back control of the Isle of Wight from tyranny of English rule! Joe Plumb will stop at nothing until the islanders have taken back control and he is made King!
This exhilaratingly daft production combines cabaret, interactive theatre, music, and comedy to confront the hypocrisies in localism and our complex quest for identity. You thought Brexit was mad? Island Independence has more lies, more red tape, more self-destructive economical disasters, and more confetti!
Following a highly successful run in the summer of 2021 and scooping up the Audience Choice Award at Ventnor Fringe, Joe Plumb's hilarious take on Island life returns to the stage with special guest Fanny Quivers! Don't miss this!
Join us for Boris's 'WORK PARTY' disco after the show!
