Winner of the 2018 Les Enfants Terribles Partnership Award with Greenwich Theatre, Incognito Theatre are now receiving rave reviews for Tobacco Road at the Edinburgh Fringe and are proud to announce the show's London transfer.
Incognito Theatre Company first burst onto the Fringe in 2014 with their dazzlingly inventive adaptation of Government Inspector.
Following their sell-out, five-star adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray in 2015 this "immensely talented ensemble" [Fest] used their striking physical theatre techniques to bring Remarque's masterpiece, All Quiet On The Western Front, to the stage with vivid intensity.
Poetic, expressionistic and infused with unrelenting energy this adaptation told Remarque's tragic tale of manipulated youth and global bloodshed.
They now embark on a new challenge, original writing, and inspired by Peaky Blinders, Brighton Rock, Alice Diamond and real life events the company will bring the greasy and gritty 1920's London underworld to the stage.
Through explosive physical style, Tobacco Road tells the story of five resourceful young men and women attempting to carve out a place in the murky underworld of 1920's London.
In the wake of the Great War, can they find the fame and wealth they crave or will their desperate need to belong lead to disastrous consequences?
Incognito seek to explore the stories that have gone untold in many history books, from the day- to-day struggle of being a female gangster in a male-dominated world to the complex and impossible standards of masculinity.
Tobacco Road is a magnified examination of the real people who had to forge a life for themselves in a world that had ignored them.
By shining a light on gang activity, this exciting production investigates how young people find themselves embroiled in gang culture and why people felt they had no other option but to go into crime.
