About the Show/Event

Information for Danelaw at Old Red Lion, Inner London (Play). Danelaw is based on the true story of a plan by extreme right wing group Combat-18 to establish a White Supremacist homeland in East Anglia, and have Chelmsford as its capital. The group (taking its name from the position of Hitler's initials in the alphabet) promised a race war against 'invading' immigrants and a system they believed had abandoned working class white people. Unfortunately for them, the great Chelmsford dream was never to exist. The party's accountant began to embezzle funds and was subsequently stabbed to death in a caravan in Harlow. This whitest of black comedies takes its lead from these events to ask why there is race hate, what England means to us now, and what, if any, redemption there can be for those who are part of 'the absolute gutter scrumbag reject class'. A business bankrolls a hooligan to create a White Supremacist State - The Danelaw, based on the Viking Kingdom that once ruled half of England. Danelaw charts the mental disintegration of the central character, Cliff, and the downfall of the great but desperately misguided vision.
