Jonny & the Baptists: Rock the Vote

Following their acclaimed, news-making Stop UKIP Tour, the UK's hottest musical comedians Jonny & the Baptists once again bring their blend of songs, satire and silliness to the nation.

Taking on the big issues ahead of the May 2015 general election, Rock The Vote is their most ambitious show yet. And with politicians now officially ranked below estate agents in the public's trust, it's a desperate bid to find a least one good reason to vote.

Stars of Radio 4's The Now Show and The Infinite Monkey Cage, nominated for five national awards including the 2014 Leicester Comedy Festival Awards and British Comedy Awards.

Song Of Riots

Written by Lucy Maycock
Music by Maria Sendow & Hanna Björk
Directed by Christopher Sivertsen & Lucy Maycock

This is a story for you, my son
A song for you to learn to sing
The story of kingdoms lost then won
And here is where we must begin

Two boys. A prince from a fairy tale – the only child of a King and a Queen. A kid from the inner city – the only son of Polish immigrants. Both boys need to leave home. Both are out in the night. Both are looking to find golden opportunities. When they meet, a riot breaks out.

With woods, wildmen, the fairytale Iron Hans and the words of William Blake, Song of Riots explores how boys cross the bridge from childhood to maturity and what happens if they fail to make that journey.Who are these wild boys, running loose in our cities and on our streets? And is there a kingdom left for them to inherit?

Please take me to your forest deep
Please take me to your forest den
I’ll leave my parents fast asleep
I’ll leave and not come back again

This dynamic, physical piece is acted, danced, spoken and sung by an international cast including four members of the Polish company Song of the Goat.

14th to 18th April

8 pm
