The war has been won but now there's a new enemy to face. Austerity. Set in the post war period of 1945-51, when Britain nationalised the railways and rabbits, Austerity - The Musical is based entirely on an untrue story. The truth is based entirely on an untrue story. The truth is, this comedy musical is a pack of lies. Join our motley theatre crew as they hatch an ambitious plan to mark their own Festival of Britain by mounting a full scale production of an ancient Greet tragedy about the trials and tribulations of war - with only a shoestring between them.Music Jonny Cheriyan. Lyrics Mike Elliston.
