This whole city swimming in the ghosts of madmen who feel they shoulda got a better deal.
It’s Saturday night on the streets of a bustling city; a city filled with people from all walks of life, and all corners of the world, all searching for love, God, their next drink, or just somewhere to call home. Across the course of one night in this city, lost old men, vegans and strippers all collide in a rip tide of chaos.
Twelve different stories told through a series of snapshots, but with much in common – all struggling to survive in a society where success is measured by the ability to make money and be ‘normal.’
First produced as a sell-out smash hit over two seasons at Shakespeare’s Globe, and now performed by the graduates of Curve’s new local actor training programme, this bold new production features original songs and modern pop hits orchestrated by award-winning East Midlands artists Sheep Soup.
Suitable for ages 15+. Contains themes of racism, drug use, religion and scenes of a sexual nature which may not be suitable for younger audiences.

On Ché Walker’s THE FRONTLINE
First performed at the Globe Theatre, London
‘Overall, it’s a realistic assortment of people we’ve all probably seen around, but who we’ve paid little or no attention to. This is why ‘The Frontline’ is so successful – it gives us time to consider the lives of these people that, more often than not, we choose to ignore.
In spite of the gloomy nature of its subject matter, it’s also immensely enjoyable and almost uplifting because of the underlying humour and the resilience of the brilliantly realised characters. Perhaps the best show I’ve seen at the Globe.’
