A riotous comedy about getting what you’re owed
Prices are out of control – and so is Antonia. Sick of having barely
enough to pay the gas bill, she leads an uprising at a local supermarket
that sees a group of angry housewives shoplift ‘til they drop. Now,
with a pile of newly “liberated” loot, Antonia and her best friend
Margherita embark on a ludicrous, laugh-a-minute escapade, keeping their
well-meaning but bumbling husbands in the dark and staying three steps
ahead of the coppers.
No Pay? No Way! (sometimes known as Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay!)
is the work of Dario Fo, Nobel Laureate and the master of theatrical
farce. True to form, the show mixes political satire, hilarious plot
twists and sharp-as-a-tack dialogue to create a thrilling experience.
Brought to life by director Sarah Giles (Accidental Death of an Anarchist) with a cast of Catherine Văn-Davies (Going Down), Glenn Hazeldine (Così), Rahel Romahn (Lord of the Flies) and Aaron Tsindos (Muriel's Wedding the Musical), No Pay? No Way! is exhilarating, insightful and chaotically funny.
“I didn’t nick it. I liberated it.” Antonia
