Underground Railroad Game tickets are now available! 

Good morning, America! Welcome to Hanover Middle School, where a pair of teachers are getting down and dirty with today’s lesson. Going round after round on the mat of American history, the duo tackles race, sex and power politics in this R-rated, kaleidoscopic and fearless comedy.

What starts as a regular teaching lesson about Civil War in the US, quickly descends into social and political commentary on race relations in contemporary America, where the teachers have as much to learn as the pupils in this classroom.

A poignant exploration of one of the most toxic of American legacies, disguised as an ordinary teaching exercise.

Very thought provoking. Excellent and passionate acting. A very uncomfortable experience for all the right reasons.

Happy Customer21st September

Wonderfully thought provoking interactive story/game. Lots of energy that hopefully makes you question the validity of what we are often handed as a true version of history. Lovely intimate theatre.

I don't mind explicit sex scenes but why do none of the reviews mention it? I know the theatre is in Soho but we could have paid a lot less to go to a local strip joint if that is what we wanted. And what was the play trying to say? There was no message that I could discern - unless it was that black people and white people are just as likely to fancy one another as any one else? But we all know that anyway. The two stars are for the actors, who were at least good, given the lack of substance they were given to work with.

Goostrey Motorist15th September

A provocative play very well-acted which challenges many of ones views on race and racism. The audience is challenged in many ways sometimes directly and at other times subliminally. The performance is broken down into a number of segments which lessens the intensity of the overall experience which would otherwise be overpowering. There are scenes which make the audience uncomfortable and it is clearly only suitable for adults. Although there is humour, this play is a serious attempt to present and explore some very serious issues.
