1968. Three thousand students occupy the London School of Economics, in the most significant act of protest in a generation.

2023. Two friends and flatmates try to work out what radical change means today, searching through archives, photos, first-hand accounts.

Everything’s connected: from the Prague Spring to MLK Jr’s murder, the Paris riots to the Nigerian Civil War, and it’s all converging here and now.

Lessons On Revolution is a ★★★★★ “thought-provoking” (A Youngish Perspective) piece of documentary theatre. It is a gripping and immersive journey through global and personal history which asks: in a new age of inequality and injustice, how can the voices of the past give us hope?

An Undone Theatre and Carmen Collective co-production

Part of Soho Rising Festival 2024, a celebration of new work created by comedians, writers and performers who have taken part in our Writers’ Lab, Comedy Lab or Cabaret & Drag Lab programmes.
