(Lyn Gardner’s article appeared in the Guardian, 12/17.)

Think Alexander Rodchenko meets Tim Burton, Charles Dickens meets Fritz Lang, and the early 20th-century silent movie meets the 21st-century graphic novel, and you have something of the flavour of this jaw-droppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable of social mobility, revolution and its suppression. Taking place here and there, now and then, the company – 1927 – uses the live performance and animation techniques that it employed to such brilliant effect in the twisted vignettes of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea to develop a more sustained narrative about life east of the city where the bankers make big bucks.
