It’s the 70s and there’s a nationwide housing crisis.  John “Mad Dog” Sky is at the helm of the world’s first estate agency for squatters. Lu is hitching from Coventry away from a difficult past towards the bright lights of the city – where punk is just around the corner and anyone can start a band. And Alan & Rosie are plotting to turn their west London neighbourhood into a brand-new nation.

The Ruff Tuff Cream Puff Estate Agency is an inspiring new musical based on the true story of how a small group of revolutionaries proved that real change is really possible.

Based on an original work by Heathcote Williams, written by Coventry-born Sarah Woods, with music by Chumbawamba’s Boff Whalley, and directed by Cardboard Citizens’ founding Artistic Director, Adrian Jackson – the production will also include a choir of local people with experience of homelessness formed in partnership with the Choir with No Name.

Don’t miss out on this year’s must-see musical, part of Coventry UK City of Culture 2021.  It’s time to start the revolution!

Co-Produced by Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Cardboard Citizens and Coventry City of Culture Trust.

Supported by funding from Spirit of 2012.
