London, 1948 – The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to ‘control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,’ it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to ‘shake confectionery to its very foundations,’ his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down. From the team who brought the sell-out Those Magnificent Men to the Lichfield Festival in 2016 comes a hilarious musical comedy satire.
Suitable for ages 7+
