About: Classified

Three short interlinking plays exploring the impact of social class on individual lives, set now and in an imagined near future. In today’s world, Leanne, an impoverished single parent, is faced with a terrible choice if she wants to give her new baby a better chance. The
outcome for both of them remains uncertain, until decided by the audience on
the night of performance.

Sixty years from now, an unnamed couple contend with the brutal outcome of a rigidly stratified society; while Sarah, in the final play, is driven towards making her own drastic protest against the dystopian world in which she lives.

Inspired by real-life situations of social exclusion and inequality, CLASSIFIED imagines what might happen if present class divisions are taken to the extreme. It presents a hard-hitting view of many of the issues facing society today, including inequality and deprivation, and asks whether extreme responses to injustice can ever be acceptable. In the current
climate of political upheaval and uncertainty, CLASSIFIED has never been more relevant.

★★★★ ‘Holds its own as a politically charged and angry piece of work… Go and see it.’ LONDON BOX OFFICE

★★★1/2 ‘A refreshingly uncluttered trio of plays, ‘Classified’ encourages a consideration of our prevailing social climate with sincerity and charm. ‘Calum Robshaw’s direction is direct and unaffected, providing a welcome simplicity… Jayne Woodhouse builds interest and tension in scenes with skill and observation.’ – THE SPY IN THE STALLS

‘Such a powerful piece of writing … performed superbly by the cast. Absolutely blown away.’

‘If you love Black Mirror and Bandersnatch go see this!’
