As a nation, we don’t talk about class. It isn’t polite, it’s uncomfortable, and there aren’t many easy answers. Standard:Elite is a piece of interactive theatre that brings class to the table in a way that is accessible, non-confrontational, and above all fun. Throw newspaper, steal cakes, and shout ‘Objection!’ in court; all while asking one question: Do I know my place?
A new piece of interactive theatre that pits audiences against each other to explore class, community, and the myths of social mobility. Throw newspaper, steal cakes, shout ‘Objection!’ in court; all while fighting for your position.
Make your own choices. Tell your own story. Create your own class war.
Winner of the Greater Manchester Fringe 2016 Award for ‘Best New Writing’.

“An all-round delightful and enlightening experience, the show touches on the darker nature of class systems and social mobility in a way that anyone can grasp, and more importantly enjoy.”
