This is Mark’s true story of cake icing as a political weapon, of demonstrations to defend Surrealism, and of getting to like the police. Mark turns an 18 month battle over Parliament Square and the right to demonstrate into a bizarrely brilliant stand up show. This is how Mark fought the law... with the law’s permission.

It’s a laugh-out-loud funny world inhabited by anarchists, goths and artists, in which Mark becomes a Guinness World Record holder, organises 2,500 protests in one day and changes the law in the process.

After the show, Mark will be back with a live presentation to let us know what happened next. And then we will have a Q+A – please leave your questions in the chatroom as the show is on.

20% of your ticket purchase will go to Lakeside Arts.
