Mark Thomas – Trespass – Work In Progress (Mark Thomas)

Mark Thomas

Following on from ‘100 Minor Acts of Dissent’, Mark Thomas is back to encourage further outbreaks of good humoured civil naughtiness. This time he’s discussing private ownership of what you might reasonably think is public land (urban land, that is: he has some hilariously trenchant views on rural life). It’s both a call to action and a lament about the impact of largely unfettered global capitalism on the very streets we all walk. He’s obviously preaching to the converted, but he does it so very well. Making you laugh, making you think and making you angry is a fine mix, one which Mark Thomas perfected long ago. Making you do something about it? That’s up to you.

Summerhall, until 30 Aug
