Futures Festival: The Regulars

Pure Imagination


Pleasance London

From £10.00

The Old King's Knee is dingy, filthy and crumbling. The council hate it, the new Gore-Tex cloaked Aesop-huffing residents hate it, even the pub's resident ancient overweight mongrel hates it and the late night boozers who spill onto Clacker Street long after closing.

That hasn't stopped it being Dodgy Dave's favourite spot to chug back a couple of lagers, play a few pranks on his pals and siphon off the assortment of pirate DVDs he's got clogging up his shed to anyone who'll have them. He's got 10 copies of Taken 2 starring that Liam Neeson fella on him now, if you're interested. Are you? Interested?

With the siren call of gentrification pounding in their ears night and day, the Regulars are determined to keep The Old King's Knee as vile as it always has been, but is Lady Luck on their side?

The Regulars is a raucous love letter to pubs, pub culture and the importance of community in the face of overpriced Guinness.

Developed and performed by Common as Muck x Pure Imagination.
