Featuring sound design by Contour Chromatic composer Giles Thomas, Michael Longhurst's They Drink It In The Congo has begun its two month run at the Almeida Theatre.
"What can we do for the worst thing in the world?
The Democratic Republic of Congo. Home to the deadliest conflict since World War II.
London. Home to a festival to raise awareness of the Congo. (That is, if Stef can get the festival off the ground).
Featuring an ensemble cast and a live band performing original music inspired by the Congo, Adam Brace's hilarious and anarchic new play unpacks the problems of doing something good about something bad. Following their collaboration on Stovepipe, (Sunday Times' 10 Best Theatre Events of the Decade) Michael Longhurst (Carmen Disruption) returns to the Almeida to direct."
