Royal Exchange audiences in Manchester get a second chance to see Gareth Farr’s Bruntwood Prize winning play Britannia Waves The Rules when it returns for a short run in The Studio from July 22-26.

The play was first seen last month when it received its world première in The Theatre, playing in repertoire with The Last Days Of Troy. It will also be seen at Latitude Festival (July 17-20) and will play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Northern Stage’s King’s Hall 3 – August 10) following its latest run at the Exchange.

A scream of protest at the state of the world, Britannia Waves The Rules is fast, furious and filled with rage.
