A caustic entertainment for the winter months.

A funny, wild ongoing history play about how our great leaders grappled first with the Pandemic and then with each other.

The Johnson-Truss-Sunak years told at a furious pace in all their horrible glory. Relive the horror! The Mess! The Murk! The lying about the lies!

It’s one big dodgy party.
