Want a really good way “to face the Brexit situation and laugh”? Brexit [the play] is the answer. While voters may be turning away from the Tories and Labour at the ballot box because of Brexit, they’re turning towards the King’s Head Theatre at the box office as Brexit [the play] returns by popular demand. To show you why, we’ve rounded up previous review highlights. Time to get booking!
After the success of its 2018 premiere, Brexit, co-written by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky, drags on returns to the King’s Head Theatre for a limited, three-week season, running from 11 June to 6 July 2019, with a press night on 13 June.
The year is 2020, and the 18-month negotiating period for Brexit is now in its fourth year with new Tory Leader and Prime Minister Adam Masters at the helm. He was the only candidate every Tory could agree on, and he has a plan to solve Brexit… if only he could remember it.
The 2019 company are David Benson as PM Adam Masters, Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Jessica Fostekew and returning cast members Adam Astill and Thom Tuck.
Brexit runs from 11 June to 6 July 2019 at the King’s Head Theatre, 115 Upper Street, London N1 1QN, with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7pm and Sunday matinees at 3pm. Tickets are priced £18.50-£27.50. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
Brexit premiered at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, with a cast featuring Timothy Bentinck, Jo Caulfield, Hal Cruttenden, Pippa Evans and Mike McShane. It transferred last autumn to the King’s Head with Lucy Montgomery, Adam Astill and Thom Tuck joining the cast.
