My Country: A Work In Progress

Visiting Company

A new play inspired by the EU referendum. National Theatre of Great Britain in collaboration with Citizens Theatre and seven other UK theatre companies.

In the days after the EU referendum, the National Theatre of Great Britain began a nationwide listening project. A team of interviewers spoke to people around the country – from Leicester to Derry/Londonderry and Merthyr Tydfil to Glasgow – to hear their views of the country and town they live in, their lives, their future, and the referendum.

Using exact words taken from the interviews, My Country: A Work In Progress puts those conversations centre stage. Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre, collaborates with Carol Ann Duffy Poet Laureate, to create this new performance which opens in London before starting its UK tour at the Citizens Theatre.

National Theatre in collaboration with Citizens Theatre, Leicester Curve, Live Theatre Newcastle, Londonderry Playhouse, Sage Gateshead, Salisbury Playhouse and Strike a Light Festival in association with Cusack Project Limited.
