THE BISCUIT

Mon, 29 October, 2018 — Sat, 03 November, 2018

By Donald Mcleary | Directed By Kate Brailsford

Cast: Stephen Clyde, Shonagh Price & Paul Thomas-Clark

Spiky, intellectual Prime Minister Ellis Gregory and his wife Sam are trapped in a safe room during a security alert, and so is friendly cleaner Colin and his trusty vacuum. When a number of explosions rock the outside of the shelter, the physically imposing Colin realises that a frail sickly man in a pin striped suit may not be the ideal candidate to lead them through the crisis. And so does Sam.

Things come to a head when an out of date Wagon Wheel – the only source of food, becomes a focal point in a deadly battle for supremacy.
