Manchester's Royal Exchange, the Lyric Hammersmith and Chris Good & Company collaborate to bring the film to the stage. Playwright Chris Goode will rework the screenplay into a stage version set in present day. The script will be updated continually throughout the run to ensure it stays fresh. 'If there's something noteworthy in the news at 1pm, hopefully you'll be hearing a reference to it in the show in the evening,' Goode told The Guardian. 'Part of the impulse was thinking about where punk is at now.'
Actor and singer Toyah Willcox, who played pyromanic teenager Mad in the the original film 40 years ago, will dig our her warpaint to star in the stage show of Jubilee. This time around Wilcox will play Queen Elizabeth 1, who is transplanted into a chaotic and deeply discontented modern London.
In true Punk spirit, Jubliee contains strong language, nudity and sexually explicit content throughout so it not recommended for under 16s. The show comes to the Lyric Hammersmith after opening at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre.
