A bittersweet tale of political awakening. With nothing left to lose but everything to fight for, Samantha followed Russell Brand to the frontline of the revolution – a council estate in Barnet. An adventure through the Neverland of anarchy where squatters, families and activists unite in a battle to cover basic needs. There's no place like home. ‘The most endearing political activist I have ever met’ (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). ‘Hits a rich vein of dark humour, nicely crafted jokes with sharp timing (Times). ‘A compelling performer with a funny, well written set’ (One4Review.co.uk).
★★★★ "Excellent storytelling and very funny" One4Review
"A fascinating insight into a world many people only glimpse, and may just fire up your social conscience too." Chortle
"Back to Basics is no ordinary Fringe Show, & for that I applaud her. It is definitely an experience to spend an hour with Samantha, one that transcends the often silly banality of the mainstream Fringe." Mumble Comedy
