Yeast Nation

A musical about Yeast, by the minds that brought you Urinetown.

Join The Yeast at the beginning of time, in the depths of the primordial sea, as the very first colony of life on Earth battle against all odds to survive, thrive, and rise. Part classic Greek drama, part bio-historical comedy musical, part bizarre fever dream, and all unique theatre experience, Yeast Nation shows that no matter your size, you have to dream big.

A European premiere from Tony and Obie Award-winning writers Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann (Urinetown) and directed by cult comedy director Benji Sperring (The Toxic Avenger, Night of the Living Dead - Live!, Shock Treatment (The Rocky Horror Sequel)) .

Brilliant, bonkers, and brimming with brio, Yeast Nation is here to prove that even the tiniest actions can change the world. Also, everyone is named Jan.
