Prepare to be taken on a kaleidoscopic odyssey where disaster capitalism, empire, stolen youth and stolen wealth merge into the simple tale of a working-class boy who just wants his dad to smile at him.

England & Son was written specifically for Mark by award-winning playwright Ed Edwards, whose previous play The Political History Of Smack And Crack garnered great critical acclaim in 2018. This is Mark's first ever tour in a production that he has not written himself.

With some deep, dark laughs - and some deep, dark love - along the way, this is a one-man play based on characters from Mark's own childhood as well as Ed's personal experience in jail.
