1968. A time of political upheaval, the likes of which has not been seen since. Until - perhaps - now.

In a new age of radical leftism and global politics, this new version of David Edgar’s 1983 award-winning hit play has startling parallels to the political revolution of the Millennial Generation.

Directed by Owen Horsley, Maydays tells the story of the idealistic young who came of age in 1968 and were drawn into revolutionary politics; of defection from east to west as well as from left to right. It is told through a number of interlocking stories, across three continents and 25 years of tumultuous history.

PLEASE NOTE the start time of Maydays is now earlier than previously advertised with evening performances starting at 7.15pm and matinees at 2.15pm.

This production contains smoking.
