In Post-War London, The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land.
Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such as the Gypsy Cream.
But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world, and the ministry, are turned upside down.
40′s British Light Music, Orwell’s 1984 and Ealing Comedy inspired this satirical, musical fantasy, a unique collaboration between the hugely popular novelist Philip Reeve and the multi-award-winning playwright and composer Brian Mitchell (Those Magnificent Men, and Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks).
