Background


After its highly successful, sell-out workshop week in June, Michael McManus's timely and darkly comic play about the (possible) future of British politics returns to the White Bear, this time for a strictly limited, fully-staged, premiere production.

Synopsis


"What if the bitter wounds caused by Brexit do not heal? What if the Brexit vote, UKIP, even the BNP and the EDL - what if all that was just the beginning?"


Joe Newman is the mainstream Labour MP for a traditional, working-class constituency in the North of England - until Momentum try to oust him.


Unwittingly they unleash a tide that could destroy not only Labour and the Conservatives - but also every assumption anyone has ever made about what is acceptable in the mainstream of British politics.


This is also a study of how political success and personal disintegration can go hand in hand.
