Charity Wars brings a high-quality mix of impressionism and satire. This is a great political farce, fast- paced and brilliantly inventive. You will be plunged into a world of furious chaos which is quite literally a RIOT! Charity Wars takes live theatre back to its inventive and ingenious roots.

Joanie, the ambiguous Marketing Director of an International Charity, gambles too much on winning power. Other charities counter-attack and war breaks out between them. When fighting spreads to Africa, her enemies close in and Joanie faces disaster.
“… thought-provoking and hilarious.” – Brendan Simms, Social Affairs Unit
“Charity Wars is a pacy, versatile and witty production”- Robert Shore, Time Out
