It'll Be Alt-Right on the Night

Currently on a UK Tour

A story of social justice warriors and the far-right. With a jazz-punk score and a friendship ending in a Lidl carpark with a punch-up and accusations of Nazism. Are they stupid? Dickheads? Or just on different sides of an impassable ideological divide.

From the same creative team behind Wound Ups acclaimed Bismillah! An ISIS Tragicomedy.

Greeny and Stevo grew up punks – squats, dumpster-diving and PVA-glue-spiked hair. But they've changed. No, f*ck that, the world's changed. One’s a soyboy, one’s a fascist, and, in a world of trigger warnings and snowflakes,  is conservatism the new punk rock?
 

"His writing is not just sharp and funny, it’s actually quite lovely... he uses language fantastically well, skilfully juxtaposing the poetic and the mundane – Alan Bennett with funkier hair."

- Exeunt Magazine, on the It'll Be Alt-Right On The Night

★★★★★

   "Outstanding... a one-man performance that feels genuine and real and as if these characters exist within the real world rather than within the realm of theatre... Succeeds phenomenally in presenting an immersive experience... Truly Electric" - Broadway Baby

★★★★★ 

 "Told with high energy and high speed ... The words challenge our own prejudices, the music gives us welcome time to think... Hilarious" - UKTW

 

★★★★

"Blisteringly funny... feverishly intense a sharp script, delivered with a delirious energy that's hard to resist... a bold, powerful show, with a deep vein of compassion running through it." - The List

★★★★

"A work which rejects easy stereotypes or judgments to recognise the sense of social disenfranchisement which creates both worldviews, and it’s all the bolder for it." - The Scotsman

 

★★★★

"A tautly written study of the unifying capacity of music and the destructive capacity of a toxic political debate. Performed by Greenhough with urgent intensity... the play is as vigorous as it is topical." - Edinburgh Festival Magazine

 

★★★★

"He needs to tell his story and he needs to tell it right now... It’ll Be Alt-Right On The Night is a clever examination of how people from the same backgrounds can find themselves as polar opposites as they grow up." - Everything Theatre
