  • "We sat out in the open air with several rows of various chairs, to watch friends tell stories. Here, we are told of the rise of anarchy through Marx. A cardboard cut-out of Stalin sits on front of a roughly prepared map of Europe. The portacabin was occupied by a theatre person who brought with them a certain theatricality to the space, which was infectious and led to all kinds of characters making a show. " David Ryan
