‘There’s no such thing as countries…’

George is in search of England, or to be more precise, what it means to be English. He was born English, his parents are English, but he’s not sure whether he is any more. So he’s back to find out. At least, that’s what he says.

Colchester author, writer and journalist Neil D’Arcy-Jones’ play about nationality, immigration and love makes its hometown debut following a hit run in London.

Packing Shed Theatre’s debut production, set up to promote and produce new writing from the Eastern Region.



Make a night of it by booking a pre-show meal at Food @ the Mercury. Simply add either a two (£13.95) or three course (£15.95) meal to your basket along with your theatre tickets.

No need to choose what you are having in advance – simply select from the delicious options available on the night.
