INFO

The year is 2108. World War Seven has laid waste to the entire planet. The nation states of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and Australasia have all been totally destroyed. And yet, miraculously, one small, insignificant country on the outermost fringes of the British Isles has survived. In a future Scotland, ruled by an evil clone of a famous 20th century Scottish politician, a small band of English freedom fighters rise up against their Caledonian oppressors.

  • ‘You will sing along, you will want to dance and, by the end, you’ll be preening back the lugs of anyone willing to listen to how great it is. A must-see.’
    DAILY RECORD
  • ‘I barely stopped laughing…as a knockabout piece of satire, it unambiguously succeeds.’
    FRINGE GURU
  • ‘The comedy flows along in words and song and is performed by an excellent cast.’

Svenska Teatern

The Swedish Theatre in Helsinki is situated in the heart of the city. It is one of six professional theatres in Finland to serve the Swedish speaking population and considered to be the Swedish national stage. The Theatre was built in 1866 by the Russian architect Nicolai Benois. As a national theater it provides a broad repertoire that caters to everyone, drama, newly written, domestic, classics, musicals, children’s theater etc. The theatre founded the company ACE-Production in 2008, an agency that owns and manages works, concepts and rights in the theatre and performing arts. ACE-Production was also one of the leading forces to launch the From Start To Finnish project.
