What is currently on at The Tobacco Factory Theatres (V1384579886)


A tale of two pirate radio stations anchored in the same murky waters just off the South Wales coast. One transmits from a rusting steamship, whilst its arch-rival broadcasts from a submarine lurking just beneath the oil-slicked surface. Rust is a fast-moving story of truth and treachery, piracy and passion, sex and death. Grotesque puppets, animated sets, special effects and absurd humour are welded together in a dark comic-book vision of low-life on high seas.
