Based on the 1927 Fritz Lang silent film, METROPOLIS opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in 1989 with a cast that included Brian Blessed, Judy Kuhn and Graham Bickley.
Set in 2026 METROPOLIS is the last city in the world where all natural resources have been extinguished. The city relies on slave workers labour to keep running. The workers are locked up in an Underground city where they are forced to work at machines and not even allowed to see the sun whilst the wealthy industrialists reign in high rise buildings above.
This revival ran at Ye Olde Rose & Crown Theatre Pub in October 2017
