Jack Dean presents
What would you do with 205 billion pounds?
Nuketown is a combined storytelling and protest art project about cities, public money and the possible end of life as we know it.
Working with town planners, architects, live feeds and enormous amounts of Lego, writer/performer Jack Dean is building a brand new utopian model city, equal in value to the proposed Trident nuclear submarine replacement programme.
Now he’d like you to invite you to grab some bricks, help him finish off the city and hear an epic tale that animates this imaginary landscape. This is one man’s epic quest to find love, a lost cat and a solution to the military-industrial complex.
Join us. It should be a blast.
Co-commissioned as part of Transit by ARC Stockton, Derby Theatre and the Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter.
This performance is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means that tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience. Click here to find out more.
Written & Performed by Jack Dean
Directed by Tom Wright
Stage Management & Design by Joshua Lucas
Academic Consultant: Mark Teddwr-Jones, Professor of Town Planning at Newcastle University
Serious Play Session
