400: A Historical Comedy


Wed 15 Jul

Bar and box office open 1 hour before performances begin


100 mins + interval




£20 Full, £18 Concessions

Exclusive to Plymouth!

Having wowed audiences for over ten years with their incredible, fast-paced Christmas shows, Plymouth favourites Le Navet Bete team up with renowned comedy writer Tony Hawks, and long term partners in crime, Barbican Theatre  to return in the Summer of 2020 with a brand new, action-packed comedy show like no other.

As part of Ocean City’s Mayflower 400 celebration expect 400 years of history in 100 minutes, from the West Country to Wild West, from the Barbican to Boston. Join four idiots as they explore our relationship with America and possibly answer some of our nations most important questions like why is baseball ‘just not cricket’, why was Queen Victoria not amused and why do our American friends call trousers pants?
