BRIGHTON BITES: Honky Bonk Theatre – The Establishment: Eton Mess

Here, Honky Bonk Theatre tells us about their show, The Establishment: Eton Mess, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.

Combining the best of clowning, quick wit and British stiffed lipped eccentricity with a satirical edge.

How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
All our lives, however, we’ve become much more focused in the last 12 months.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?

The Establishment: Eton Mess is an extremely fun, very silly, high-spirited show which touches on many of the important issues that face us as a nation today.
