See 200 years of British theatre in two acts in this special presentation brought to you by The Dukes Young Company.

In an evening of classic scenes and characters from some of the most iconic British playwrights, watch the changing of the times as our flagship youth theatre group explore the different faces of theatre, politics and society in the two centuries between the birth of Queen Victoria in 1819 and Britain’s planned exit from the European Union.

Plus, see the Young Company’s own response to the current climate in a devised finale created especially for the show.
