The Liberty Tree + Writer/Director Chris Jury

Friday, March 3rd, 2017 at 6:45pm

The Hive Studio, Sawmill Walk, The Butts
Worcester, WR1 3PD, Get Directions

The Liberty Tree is a romping, hilarious, feel-good antidote to the austerity agenda.

This film is an innovative and cinematic recording of the original theatre show, using echoes of The Wizard Of Oz to make a Brechtian critique of the relentless fragmentation and isolation of modern society.

If you are baffled, bullied, intimidated or oppressed and sick to death of being inspected, regulated and measured, then The Liberty Tree might be just the tonic you need!

The film’s writer & director, Chris Jury of Public Domain Productions will present the film and take Question afterwards. There is bound to be some lively debate.
