Whether you're xenophobic or arachnophobic, you're going to recognise the plight of besieged "true Englishman" George in "Pulling Up The Drawbridge" in this year's Brighton Fringe. Written and performed by David Stephens and directed by award-winning Jonathan Brown, this darkly comic satire casts a sideways glance at those who see "the defence of the realm" as their raison d'etre.
The fear of losing what it means to be English has driven George to the edge, literally, and from his cliff-top tent he is going to defend his island against whoever or whatever may be coming. Everyone else was too busy watching telly.
Performances every Saturday throughout May.
