My Country: A Work In ProgressFor those who still aren't sick of hearing about Brexit, the National Theatre is staging a Brexit-inspired production this February. Rufus Norris and Carol Ann Duffy have collaborated to create My Country: A Work In Progress, which has been made as part of a nationwide listening project. In the days after the EU referendum, the National Theatre began the project in which a team of interviewers spoke to people all around the country to hear their views of the country and the town they live in, their lives, their future and the referendum. The production will be staged in London before touring around the country.

About National Theatre: Dorfman Theatre

Replacing the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
