A Ballad Of Broken Britain
Anchor Remedies

Written by Matt Roberts

Directed by Tom Stabb

Brexit, benefits, broken homes and viagra are only a few of the issues examined in this new, original play by Matt Roberts.


Flawlessly performed"

~ The Packet 


Set within the 4 walls of a local pharmacy, this one- room situation comedy - drama features two opinionated, strong-willed and polarised members of staff. As they witness the ailments and sicknesses of the public, they may be able to administer the medicine, but can they find the remedy for the ills of Britain?


"The jokes come thick and fast.

Courageous and witty"
