We Anchor in Hope
About We Anchor in Hope
All over London public houses become private flats. Tomorrow The Anchor closes for good. It’s the end of an era, but Kenny and the gang are going out with a bang. There’s a blow-up sheep, karaoke and a lot of Campari. There’s secrets and grudges and forgotten dreams. As the front doors are locked and the bar is drunk dry, there’s a lot more to lose than just a pub.
A new play from the award-winning Anna Jordan (Killing Eve, Succession & YEN), and directed by Bunker Artistic Director Chris Sonnex. For the duration of the run, The Bunker will become The Anchor – transformed into a functioning pub with post-show events including pub quizzes and karaoke nights.
"An old-fashioned play celebrating an old-fashioned idea: that people need places where they can come together and talk and support each other." Lyn Gardner
