An activist from Norfolk has written a play that takes the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to task for its treatment of benefit claimants. Norwich Pride chose to censor the title from its 2017 programme. But that didn’t stop the artist from pursuing it, and now the local council has even been convinced to foot some of the bill.
Comic to comedy

A Very Queer Nazi Faust is performed at Norwich Arts Centre on 12 September. It’s described by the venue as an “experimental participatory performance”, and tickets are priced at £6.66. The play has only been performed to the public in full once before; in a tent at Norwich Pride 2017, when the title was censored from the event’s program. But the performance itself was a success, as the play’s writer, Vince Laws, tells The Canary:

" We got a really good response. Got a great review as well – Norwich Radical did a review. So yeah, that kind of encouraged us."
