Loose Lips Perform Sitting on Offence at The Met

The Met welcomes Loose Lips Theatre Company with Sitting on Offence running from 24 to the 26 November at 8pm.

In a world where the lines between political correctness and freedom of speech have become blurred, Sitting on Offence is an exciting look at whether the offence is merely in the ear of the listener.

Feelings are being hurt, people are living in fear, how can they contain the unwieldy beasts causing this torment? With words!!!!!! Drastic measures must be taken to protect the community, but how will straight talking PC Gomad cope? He needn\’t worry, he has his new expert assistant to guide him.

Inspired by practitioners such as Berkoff and Kneehigh, Sitting On Offence is a multi role play, encompassing explosions of truth and comedy. Exploring whether political correctness is as offensive as its brutally honest nemesis, freedom of speech, the show promises to be thrilling, funny and controversial.

Written by Karolyn Szejner & Sarah Turnbull Sitting On Offence debuted in Salford during the August Riots this year and The Dancehouse, Manchester as part of the Manchester Comedy Festival.
