I punched a Nazi (((and I liked it)))

I punched a Nazi (((and I liked it))) was one of our most ambitious works. It played at the Michael Pilch Studio in February 2019. Earlier that year, two of us saw saw men performing Nazi salutes in Oxford, outside Steve Bannon’s talk at the Oxford Union. We filmed it and the video was sold to the press, funding this show.

We wanted to address fascism and the radicalisation of young white men. We also wanted to write a love story (about Nazis).

What happened next was a 3 hour play in two acts. Live goldfish in blenders, live video on 60” LCD screens, three real Tinder profiles and a show co-created with our audience each night. We wrote a love story, but was it enough?

I punched a Nazi (((and I liked it)))  sold out at the Michael Pilch studio and a 20-minute monologue from the play was performed by Alasdair Linn at the Old Fire Station in May 2019.
