Barrie Keefe’s Barbarians. Begins next week in TootingFriday, 13 April, 2012
First performed in 1977, Barbarians is set in a period of record highs in youth unemployment, government spending cuts and social unrest.
Set in the year before the winter of discontent, parallels with today’s society are starkly apparent in 2012 with unemployment and economic hardship once again on the news agenda.
The play will be performed from 17th April – 12th May at Broadway Studios, a converted Youth Enterprise Scheme just off Tooting High Road, a fitting venue for this timely revival.
