An outrageously funny satire on modern politics, New Labour and the fine art of spin.
Alistair Beaton’s hilarious play, part farce, part biting satire, is set in the plush seaside hotel of a party conference. As anti-capitalist riots rage in the streets below, sinister and obsessive press secretary Eddie and young speech-writing aide Paul are trying to finalise the PM’s conference speech. But Eddie’s manipulative skills are to be tested far more by the scandal that George, dim-witted lord and close friend of the PM, gradually reveals – not helped by the arrival of Eddie’s ex-wife and investigative journalist, Liz.
