An adaptation of Dario Fo's classic comedy. A fast and furious political satire on the plight of the working poor, transposed to Brexit Britain. Anthea is a woman on the edge, out of work, and in arrears. When she gets mixed up in a riot at the local supermarket, she seizes the opportunity to stock her empty cupboards and those of her friend, Maggie. But how will they hide the loot from their lawabiding husbands? What will they tell the police? When the going gets tough Anthea's anarchic imagination takes over, with a fantastical, farcical answer for everything...
