London, 1948. 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 sweet treats, such as the Gypsy Cream and the Bourbon. 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. Inspired by 40's British Light Music, George Orwell’s 1984 and the Ealing Comedies this is a satirical musical fantasy, produced by renowned company the Foundry Group, with a section by international film-maker Ben Rivers, The Ministry of Biscuits promises clever original, hilarious, and infectiously tuneful entertainment for all ages.
