Following an acclaimed season at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Brexit (the play) is headed to the King’s Head Theatre in November.
Set in the whispering corridors of power, Brexit is a tale of comic political intrigue, of promises made and broken, of juggling the balls of power whilst taking the wheel of the big Brexit bus which is now careering out of control.
It’s 2020 and The Gordian Knot of Brexit remains tightly tangled. To keep a united government and to achieve an exit deal remains incompatible … or is it? Is Adam Masters the man of the moment? The political miracle worker of his generation? The Wizard of Westminster? The Gary Kasparov in this drawn-out game of political chess? Adam has won the Tory leadership contest. He was the only candidate all factions of his party could agree on. But the poison chalice is not for him and he has a foolproof plan; A cunning scheme to unite his MPs for the final stages of the Brexit negotiations. It’s easy; a piece of cake; child’s play. All he has to do is… just …umm just … now, what was it again? …How’s it supposed to go? What was that killer move? ….
Brexit stars Timothy Bentinck (David Archer – The Archers), Thom Tuck (The Penny Dreadfuls), Pippa Evans (Fast and Loose – BBC2, Showstoppers), Lucy Montgomery (The Friday Night Project, Bo’ Selecta) and Adam Astill (Eastenders – Luke Branning) and is directed by Tom Salinsky.
Brexit written by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky, will run at the King’s Head Theatre from October 30 and November 17, 2018.
