About: "THE MINISTRY OF BISCUITS"

The Ministry of Biscuits
by
Philip Reeve (Mortal Engines)
& Brian Mitchell (Those Magnificent Men)

In Post-War London, the Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and creates a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world, and the ministry, are turned upside down.

40′s British Light Music, Orwell’s 1984 and Ealing Comedy inspired this satirical musical by best-selling novelist Philip Reeve (whose Mortal Engines is now a major Peter Jackson movie) and award-winning playwright and composer Brian Mitchell (Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks). Starring Radio 4's David Mounfield (Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show), it comes to London following a sell-out 35-date national tour.
