Dark, witty, over-the-top action comedy about finding your true self and defying your masters from the makers of 'The Accidental Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' (*****Theatre Bath).”
Stand and Deliver is a fast-paced, character-driven, dark, witty, zany period action-comedy fusing theatricality and flair with Tarantino-inspired action.
Following incompetent highwayman Robert Steel and his would-be apprentice Eve as they attempt to steal a precious taxidermied lobster, which contains the key to a nefarious scheme of political corruption reaching to the upper echelons of the British government.
It's a show about casting off the roles which have been foisted upon us by our stations in life and learning to embrace our true selves. Our two down-and-out, disillusioned protagonists must wrestle with their resentment and hatred as they try to find the right way to defy those who have used and betrayed them.
