Anneli Page -tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ!

Anneli co-starred as yankee PR guru Gina in Mike Packer’s tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalz! which ran at the Hen & Chickens Theatre in Islington from the 28th of May to the 1st of June.

This touching, sad, hilarious, dangerous and unfathomably offensive play about the world’s unluckiest punk-rockers premiered to rave reviews at the Bush Theatre in 2007 before going on to be performing in three continents including a long-running rep at the Sovremennik Theatre in Moscow under the name Anarchy.

In 1977 Punk was king. One of the bands bringing Anarchy to the UK was tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalz! However, after his fellow bandmates left Billy Abortion bleeding to death in a Copenhagen hotel room the band imploded. Flash-Forward to 2007 and Billy is back from the dead and stuck stacking shelves.

With such a major obstacle in the former-band members’ relationships surely nothing can bring them back together – until a major American corporation walks in wanting to pay the band a small fortune for the rights to their anarchist anthem ‘Plastic People.’

With such an attractive offer on the table all of the fellow band-members including Mark Faeces and Louise Gash come out of the woodwork looking for a slice of the pie.
