This is a story about me and 'Steve' - Steve is not in fact his real name, but a pseudonym, for a friend I've known for a long time, who I suspect may be a massive racist …
We've not always seen eye to eye, different football teams, different taste in girls - but I never thought I'd be accusing him of being 'A Nazi' in a car park of Lidl on the night of June 9th.
Kind of ironic now that he introduced me to 'Nazi Punks F**k Off' by the Dead Kennedy's.
I don't really think he's 'a Nazi' - not in the traditional sense.
Not in the way that's existed since the war.
I was using it to insinuate his views which can only be said to be alt-right.
And as I try to understand how two lads from Sheffield, two lads who have grown up together, shared our first alcoholic drink together and lost our virginities on the same night can have such fundamentally different views, I realise this term which, even poster boy Paul Joseph Watson rejects, isn't so un-relatable.
The alt-right are angry, and understandably so.
But their anger is not aimed at the people causing the problems, but by other people suffering the same problems.
It'll be Alt-Right is the story of friendship, disenfranchisement, punk-rock and a global movement - born of economic, political and social frustrations.
Though a fusion of theatre, comedy, cabaret and jazz-punk, Alt-Right explores the discourse between two lives and asks what it's like to be a disenfranchised young man in modern Britain.
Is conservatism the new punk?
From the team behind acclaimed Bismillah! an ISIS Tragicomedy comes a work-in-progress from Wound Up Theatre.
Writer Matthew Greenhough and director Jonny Kelly return to collaborate on this touching, hilarious and compassionate discussion of the rise of the alt-right in young, disenfranchised young people.
