A writer and performer will use LEGO to build a utopian city next month.

Nuketown will be performed by Jack Dean, and will take place at Theatre Shop in Queens Square, Clevedon, on July 7.

Audiences will be able to question how they would build their ideal city.

A Theatre Orchard spokesman said: “What would you do with £205billion?

“Nuketown is about cities, public money and the possible end of life as we know it.

“Working with a town planner, architects, live feeds and enormous amounts of LEGO, writer and performer Jack Dean is building a brand new utopian model city, equal in value to the proposed Trident nuclear submarine replacement programme.

“Now he’d like to invite you to grab some bricks, help him finish off the city and hear an epic tale that animates this imaginary landscape.”

Nuketown will take to the stage at 7.30pm.

Before the show a free LEGO town planning session will take place in Queens Square from 3-5pm.

Tickets, priced £11, are available from or by calling 03336 663366.

Theatre Shop’s summer season then draws to a close with a pair of fantastic shows.

An Indian Abroad will be performed on July 12.

Pariah Khan’s debut production follows a student’s trip to the exotic shores of Great Britain where he learns plenty about himself and the world.

Two days later Instant Wit will showcase their improvisation skills with a performance packed with gags and sketches.

The Mercury and Theatre Orchard have teamed up to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to see Nuketown.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.

By entering this competition you agree to be contacted by Archant about this.

The deadline is 10am on July 3.
