The 400 - A Historical Comedy

The 400 is a a light hearted and irreverent piece of theatre that looks at Britain’s relationship with the USA – from 1620 all the way through to now.

Performed by renowned comedy/clowning theatre company Le Navet Bête, it will take place at the Plymouth Athenaeum between August and September 2020, it follows the hilarious attempts of four people trying to flee their past lives.

The 400 traces their hilarious attempts to get away - getting caught up in war, revolt, exploitation…..
