A National Theatre Production

My Country; a work in progress
in the words of people across the UK and Carol Ann Duffy

In the days following the Brexit vote, a team from the National Theatre (of Great Britain) spoke to people nationwide, aged 9 to 97, to hear their views on the country we call home. In a series of deeply personal interviews, they heard opinions that were honest, emotional, funny, and sometimes extreme. My Country puts their words centre stage.

Britannia calls a meeting, to listen to her people. Caledonia, Cymru, East Midlands, North East, Northern Ireland and the South West bring the voices of their regions. The debate is passionate, the darts are sharp, stereotypes nailed and opinions divided. Can there ever be a United Kingdom?

These real testimonials are interwoven with speeches from party leaders of the time in this groundbreaking new play by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and director Rufus Norris.

Created in collaboration with eight UK arts organisations in association with Cusack Projects Limited.
Collaborators:
Citizens Theatre
Curve
Derry Playhouse
Live Theatre
National Theatre Wales
Sage Gateshead
Salisbury Playhouse
Strike A Light Festival
