The Theatre Royal Wakefield will be hosting comedian Mark Thomas at their next lockdown livestream next week.

Mark Thomas will be telling his true story of how Britain’s biggest arms manufacturer (BAE Systems) came to spy on a comedian in his performance 'Cuckooed'.

It's a tale of hubris, planes, demos and undercover deceit told by the award-winning performer. It is a personal and timely tale that tries to unearth what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state.

The show won an Edinburgh Fringe First Award, the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award and ran for a month off Broadway in New York.
