My Country

My Country: A Work in Progress

My Country; a work in progress in the words of people across the UK and Carol Ann Duffy. In the days following the EU referendum, the National Theatre began a nationwide listening project. A team of interviewers spoke to people around the country – from Leicester to Derry/Londonderry and Merthyr Tydfil to Glasgow – to hear their views of the country and town they live in, their lives, their future, and the referendum. Using exact words taken from the interviews, My Country; a work in progress puts those conversations centre stage.

Our Review

At every press conference since the EU referendum result in June 2016 I've listened to journalists asking Rufus Norris how the National Theatre plan to deal with 'Brexit' – in the broadest terms, where is the 'Brexit Play' coming from?
