The Last Temptation of Boris Johnson

About

The fastest moving story of our time...
The smash hit play that sold out its London run comes to Eastbourne as part of a U.K. tour

It was the dinner that changed history: the night in February 2016 when Boris Johnson decided to vote ‘leave’ and a nation’s future was sealed. Guests included the spirits of Prime Ministers past including Margaret Thatcher, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair as well as fellow MP Michael Gove, the journalist Sarah Vine, Marina Wheeler and Evgeny Lebedev.

Fast forward to post-Brexit Britain, 2029. For reasons that may be fact and/or fiction at the time of the performance, Boris, no longer in power, roams the political wilderness. Unexpected events see him back in the spotlight and with a chance to “make Britain great again”. This play addresses the big questions: What will Britain look like in ten years’ time? Is chlorinated chicken really bad for you? Who does the NHS belong to and what IS going on inside the head of the most divisive and controversial politician of our time?

As befits the fastest moving story of our time, the script will be updated - nightly if necessary - to reflect events....

Written by Jonathan Maitland (author of the hit plays Dead Sheep and An Audience With Jimmy Savile), this uniquely timely comedy drama broke box office records during its run at London’s Park Theatre.
