The Democratic Republic of Congo. Home to the deadliest conflict since World War II. London. Home to a festival to raise awareness of the Congo. (That is, if Stef can get the festival off the ground).

Featuring an ensemble cast and a live band performing original music inspired by the Congo, Adam Brace's hilarious and anarchic new play unpacks the problems of doing something good about something bad.
