Award-winning writer / director Jonathan Brown, and international performer Kate Goodfellow are collaborating to create a new one-woman show, Smoking Ban, set in the high-powered world of tobacco marketing.

Smoking Ban centres around Carol, Health & Science Officer at Anglo American Tobacco, and asks… What happens when the Smoking Ban goes all the way... to The Top?

Writer Brown says, “Imagine. You work at the UK headquarters of Ciggy Central, and you’ve just got to be seen to be a loyal user of the product and puff away happily throughout the building  or be held with deep suspicion. But then, The Ban kicks in, the building is forced to go “smoke-free” and all that loyalty goes, literally, out the window!”

Brown goes on, “Torn between her loyalty to the company and to the primal stirrings deep inside her from a denied First Nation Heritage, Carol plays both sides..... until Jerry, MD of the company (and her Tuesday morning shag) calls her into his office to ask her why she’s not been... inhaling!”

Something Underground Theatre Company, who in 2012 Won the Best New Play Award at The Brighton Fringe have created another funny, profound and thought-provoking play where high-powered profiteering clash with Native American traditions and rites.

Something Underground Theatre have been racking up the Brighton Fringe Awards lately, with Best New Play in 2012, Best Male Performer in 2013, Best New Play shortlist 2013, Best Female Performer nomination 2013, and Best Male Performer nomination 2007.
