Synopsis: 
Based on the Alan Moore comic, V For Vendetta is the fight for freedom and building a new world from the fascist state imposed following horrifying wars.

Sadly, I when I saw this, last trains and a late start meant that I could not stay to the end. But I'm glad I saw what I did. The Sections with Valerie's love letter were brilliantly done especially. The staging was excellent, especially given it was a fringe production in a pub, the Shadow Gallery was so different from every angle.

The explosions left a little to be desired, but again, stage production in a pub...
