The war is over and the nation lies in ruins. You and your fellow survivors must build the beginnings of a new country. What are the rules you’re going to live by? And can you avoid the mistakes of the past?

A piece of interactive theatre for a playing audience. Early Days (of a Better Nation) explores the possibilities of nationhood and democracy, drawing inspiration from the 2011 riots in England, the Arab Spring, Iceland’s crowd-sourced constitution and the rise (and fall) of the Occupy movement.
