Urinetown

£28.50-£49.50

In a city of the future that has been inflicted with a terrible drought, business tycoon Caldwell B. Cladwell has made his fortune through bribery and the monopolization of all public toilets. With a brutal police force maintaining law and order, it’s not a place to get caught short! Risk it and you will be sent off to a place no one returns from – the infamous Urinetown.



The city needs a revolution and every revolution needs a hero… however unlikely.



Jamie Lloyd is directing the UK premiere of Tony Award winning URINETOWN The Musical, with music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis.
