Fresh from winning the Les Enfants terribles "Greenwich theatre partnership award", Incognito Theatre Company returns to Pleasance Islington for a second time with their explosive physical energy to explore a tale of the frustrated and disenfranchised youth of 1920’s London in Tobacco Road.

We are the brow beaten scum of London, turned kings and queens of the streets, and anything we need we take.”

what is tobacco road about?

We follow a gang of five disillusioned but resourceful young men and women as they attempt grind out a place in the murky underworld of a brutal and industrial city. Their naive and disorientated desire to belong collides with the sheer brute nature of a world in which men and women do whatever they can to get by. Their individual truths, struggles and insecurities are laid bare throughout as each gang member attempts to come to terms with vicious demons that plague their being.
