England, Tim Crouch / Stage

At once shocking and entertaining, this play is not afraid to tackle the really big issues, including the global economy, where everything is for sale - even human organs.

This is a play that is not afraid to stop and make you think.

Performed in English.


The Stage Festival, produced in cooperation between Korjaamo Theatre and Helsinki Festival, showcases the best in contemporary European drama. This year, the Festival turns its focus to the lot of human beings in a fast-changing world. What happens when individual freedoms collide with unpredictable and unknowable social movements, it asks?

Since its inception, the Stage has gone on to claim its position as a prominent European theatre festival. The 2009 programme features ten international visitors, two Finnish premieres and a review of Finnish theatre. A total of fifty performances will take place at the Korjaamo festival hub and other theatres and venues across Helsinki.

"Compelling and quietly provocative. This is a play that is not afraid to stop and make you think."
Time Out New York

"England may be more head than heart and at times a little chilly, but it is an endlessly thoughtful piece which artfully challenges a globalised world where everything is for sale."
