Out of Joint, in association with Hampstead Theatre, present
by Alistair Beaton 2001
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?
‘Brings political rudeness and cheek back to theatre stifled by cautious conservatism’
‘Hooray for a political comedy that is actually funny!’
‘Alistair Beaton has cooked up a sizzling political farce’
‘Pure comic joy’
