Got to see this yesterday @ the National Theatre.

Absolutely brilliant - if you get the chance do go & see it.

Unfortunately the production is ending soon (next week or so) and moving back to the USA.

You can read about it on Anais Mitchell's website https://www.anaismitchell.com

However, the "show stopper" in the 1st act is "Why We build the Wall"

Why We Build the Wall

Hades
Why do we build the wall ?
My children, my children
Why do we build the wall ?

Chorus
Why do we build the wall ?
We build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

Hades
How does the wall keep us free ?
My children, my children
How does the wall keep us free?

Chorus
How does the wall keep us free ?
The wall keeps out our enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

Hades
Who do we call the enemy ?
My children, my children
Who do we call the enemy ?

Chorus
Who do we call the enemy ?
The enemy is poverty
And the wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

Hades
Because we have and they have not !
My children, my children
Because we have and they have not !

Chorus
Because we have and they have not !
Because they want what we have got !
The enemy is poverty
And the wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

Hades
What do we have that they should want ?
My children, my children
What do we have that hey should want ?

Chorus
What do we have that they should want ?
We have a wall to work upon !
We have the work and they have none
And our work is never done
My children, my children
And the war is never worn
The enemy is poverty
And the wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free
We build the wall to keep us free


Written by Anais back in the 00s

Very scary considering the antics of the Trumptons / Brexit SELs and their financiers ....
