Tue 7th Mar - Sat 11th Mar 2017

Book Tickets

Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it’s worth talking about.

Returning to The Bike Shed Theatre for the third time, masters of musical satire, Jonny & The Baptists present a riotous epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.

‘Spirited comedy… broad, daft and punchy.’
★★★★ THE GUARDIAN

‘Wickedly amusing.’
★★★★ THE TIMES

‘The political edge of 80’s alternative comedy – a pop-soul voice to win X Factor.’
STEWART LEE, OBSERVER
