‘No Planet B – The History Of The World Backwards’
Robert Newman with musicians and actors Diego Brown and the Good Fairy.
“If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.”
Following his sell-out two-week run last year at the Tricycle Theatre, Robert Newman returns with the ambitious musical No Planet B – The History Of The World Backwards.
Hurtling from 2006 to the Creation Myth of the Neanderthals (via Black Panthers, Shah of Iran, the Women’s Movement, Elephant Man, Galileo and Columbus) there has never been a more epic show on the London stage than No Planet B – The History Of The World Backwards.
No Planet B – The History Of The World Backwards is a meditation upon the massive social changes which are coming to us all as a result of Peak Oil and Cimate Chaos; and a critique of European power in the world. It’s also about loneliness and loss: the story of doomed lovers John and Patches in the London Blitz is passed on from historical character to character, from Thomas Hardy, to Shakespeare to Jesus.
Part play, part musical, part stand-up, this is a genre-busting dramatic piece.
