ArtisTree Selects: Theatre Bites – Tobacco Road


Book tickets here

Through an explosive physical style, Tobacco Road tells the story of five resourceful young men and women attempting to carve out a place in the murky underworld of 1920's London. In the wake of the Great War, can they find the fame and wealth they crave or will their desperate need to belong lead to disastrous consequences?

Incognito Theatre seek to explore the stories that have gone untold in many history books, from the day- to-day struggle of being a female gangster in a male-dominated world to the complex and impossible standards of masculinity. Tobacco Road is a magnified examination of the real people who had to forge a life for themselves in a world that had ignored them. By shining a light on gang activity, this exciting production investigates how young people find themselves embroiled in gang culture and why people felt they had no other option but to go into crime.

‘Incognito is a company that oozes talent and panache, and Tobacco Road is a must see of this year’s fringe.’ Edinburgh Guide

Part of ArtisTree Selects: Theatre Bites. Theatre Bites offers five irresistible and bite-sized British plays presented in collaboration with Lindsey McAlister, founder of Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF), and Tony Awards-winning producer Brian Zeilinger. Tuck into everything from highly entertaining tales of spies and gangsters, to the most hotly debated global and social issues of our time: environmental, gender and diversity.
