A debate between a dead PM, the current PM, the current President of the USA, and that man who stirs.
For this new theatre performance Lord & Slater have invited guest artists to join in a unique work. Thatcher May Trump Farage is a staged debate of 4 world figures explaining Brexit, Presidencies, Campaigns and Policies. Expect a fight, stupidity and a choreographed dance to Gwen Stefani Hollaback Girl. Political, current and funny. We have questionable leaders – farts the lot of them. This performance was previewed at the Threshold Festival, Liverpool, 2017, and re-developed with Arts Council England’s support in May 2019 for the Plymouth Fringe Festival in June 2019.
“Thatcher May Trump Farage presented a satirical insight into who our current leaders are, oh and I forgot to mention, seeing Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May dance to Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani was the icing on the cake to prove that right now, in the week May signed for the start of Brexit, life is b.a.n.a.n.a.s”
