Any Means NecessaryWhen Mel meets Dave at a protest, she believes she has met her kindred spirit. Dave soon becomes central to her life and her activist friends. But is he who he appears to be?

An emotionally compelling drama that explores love, betrayal, secrets and lies and exposes the brutality of a police policy that used any means necessary to undermine political protest.

Any Means Necessary is based on the events surrounding a group of environmental activists and the 2011 court case which charged them with trespass at nearby Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station. This real-life event set in Nottingham uncovered a national scandal and is the inspiration for this major new commission, written by Kefi Chadwick and directed by Nottingham Playhouse Artistic Director Giles Croft.

Kefi and Giles are taking time out (the play runs from Friday 5 February – Saturday 20 February 2016 ) to talk about the play, the politics of this time and the impact it had within Nottingham. Part of the Conspiracy season at the Playhouse.

Admission for this event is free and refreshments will be available.

There will be 15% discount off any purchases made on the night.

Booking is recommended. To attend this event, please RSVP to fiveleaves.bookshopevents@gmail.com or alternatively call in to the shop.
