The City and the Town Theatre Tickets

The City and the Town

When Ben returns home to his father’s funeral after 13 years away, he is confronted with uncomfortable truths about the past, present and future of the community and the family he grew up in and left behind.

"Tricky thing memories – not always the way you remember them."

Anders Lustgarten’s new play is a funny, eclectic, and uniquely political piece of theatre that brings a fresh perspective to some of the political divides and problems facing our country today.

Anders’ previous work includes Lampedusa (Hightide/Soho Theatre), The Seven Acts of Mercy (RSC) and The Secret Theatre (Globe). Directed by Dritero Kasapi (Artistic Director of Sweden’s National Touring Theatre, Riksteatern) whose previous UK work includes the acclaimed Nina – a story about me and Nina Simone (Traverse, Young Vic and UK tour).

Produced by Riksteatern and Matthew Linley Creative Projects
