Coming to the Pleasance London after a hit Edinburgh run, Coalition charts the final days of Lib Dem Leader Matt Cooper, in this fast-moving comedy satire about modern politics.
It’s early 2015 and Britain’s coalition government has only a few months left to run. The Conservative Prime Minister and his Lib Dem Deputy haven’t spoken for months. The economy has flat-lined and government MPs are threatening to defect right, left and centre. Lib Dem leader Matt Cooper has to make a series of last, desperate gambles to save the party he loves.
Starring Thom Tuck, Jo Caulfield, Jessica Regan, Phil Mulryne, Alistair Barrie, John Dorney and Phill Jupitus as Sir Francis Whitford.
