'I believe that open markets and free enterprise are the best imaginable force for improving human wealth and happiness. And I would go further: where they work properly, they can actually promote morality.' David Cameron, January 2012.

As the financial world issues its shock treatment, what happens when the City’s agenda is taken to its ultimate conclusion? Anders Lustgarten’s passionately argued play explodes the ethos of austerity and offers an alternative.

Described by the critic Aleks Sierz as 'a perceptive, provocative and poetically political reading of the state we’re all in', If You Don’t Let Us Dream, We Won’t Let You Sleep received its world premiere on 15 February 2013 at the Royal Court Theatre, London.
