It’s party conference time, and in the leader’s hotel suite, the spin doctors are sweating over the Prime Minister’s speech. With public opinion increasingly volatile, there’s panic at the top. This time it’s all got to be perfect.

But in the same hotel a journalist is piecing together a scandal so far-reaching that it could keep the party out of power for a generation. Can the story be killed? Can the journalist be bought off? And exactly how far will a government go to save itself?

A new, daring and bitingly funny satire on the politics of spin by Alistair Beaton, whose extensive writing credits include Spitting Image, Not the Nine O’Clock News and The Ratepayers Iolanthe (Oliver Award), co-written with Ned Sherrin.

‘Hooray for a political comedy that is actually funny!’ Daily Mail

‘Alistair Beaton has cooked up a sizzling political farce’  Evening Standard

‘pure comic joy’  Daily Telegraph

“brings political rudeness and cheek back to theatre stifled by cautious conservatism…****” The Guardian
