Brimstone and Treacle

Brimstone and Treacle


19 Maldon Road,
Great Baddow,


Theatre at Baddow present Dennis Potter’s controversial allegory about fear, faith, morality and the incomprehensible randomness of good and evil.
Mr and Mrs Bates care for their daughter, Pattie, who was left injured and insensible following a hit and run. They lead a desperate, isolated existence, but find their world dramatically changed when a young visitor with a silver tongue crashes into their lives. Martin seems to be the answer to their prayers, but is he their saviour, a thief or the Devil himself?
Renowned for being banned before transmission by the BBC, Brimstone and Treacle’s glimpse into suburban paranoia, xenophobia and insularity is as revealing and relevant today as it was in the 1970s.
WARNING: This play contains some offensive language and scenes of a disturbing nature.
