JONNY & THE BAPTISTS: EAT THE POOR

A message from Jonny & the Baptists to us all in Cardigan!

 

 

This performance is the full-length show! The first set is about 35 mins and is followed by a 15 min interval (to refresh your glasses and stretch your legs). The second set is the full ‘story’ 60 mins long

**************************************

Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it’s worth talking about.

A riotously funny epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal from the multi-award-nominated musical comedians.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.

From frontman Jonny Donahoe, Drama Desk Award nominated star and co-writer of international hit Every Brilliant Thing.
