SUS: An online reading
With Matthew Morrison and Guy Osborn

In June 1979 Barrie Keeffe’s play SUS premiered at the Soho Poly theatre, a month after Margaret Thatcher’s victory at that year’s General Election. The play concerned the so called ‘sus laws’, the stop and search powers that allowed the police to arrest people deemed to be ‘acting suspiciously’ or intending to commit an arrestable offence. Join the Soho Poly Online for a live reading of this modern classic, performed by a new professional cast in partnership with Unfinished Histories. Click here for tickets.
