Synopsis


The story of Boris Johnson as a Shakespearean tragicomedy, 'Boris Rex' follows its perfidious anti-hero from the boorish days of Oxford University, right through to a blood-soaked General Election, to spin a murky tale of ambition, back-stabbing and ultimately ... a national catastrophe.


Borrowing elements from both Julius Caesar and Richard III, the play fuses original verse with newly-penned pentameters, spoken word, comedy and rap, and a visual aesthetic somewhere between Greek tragedy and dreadful clown.
