The revolution is over. It is time to start shaping your new nation.
What are the rules we want to live by? Who leads us? Why are we a country at all?
Early Days of a Better Nation is about the opportunity to start again.
A theatrical exploration of the nature and limitations of democracy, which may - or may not- unravel into a political game of unintended consequences.
This is an early scratch performance for an audience of 120 people. It builds on the audience-led theatre of Coney’s "A Small Town Anywhere"
Developed with National Theatre Wales and supported by BAC
Made by Coney, here represented by Annette Mees, Mink Ette, Jason Sutton and Sam Howey Nunn
“Understatedly audacious… an interrogation of ideology and its
poisonous effect on community… the fraught final stages feel as
complex and electrifying as any actor-based drama. The moral decisions
we are asked to take might seem simplistic to a fly on the wall, but
the luxury of such detachment is long gone.”
Andrzej Lukowski, reviewing A Small Town Anywhere for Time Out.
“An important pointer to how theatre is developing,”
Will Gompertz, BBC Arts Editor on A Small Town Anywhere
