As real-life Brexit chaos continues, Brexit [the play] returns to the King’s Head Theatre for a strictly limited run from 11 June to 6 July 2019. We caught up with co-writer and director Tom Salinsky about the dramatic appeal of politics and his long-time collaboration with Robert Khan. Time to get booking!
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.
A lawyer and an improv expert have created a version of Brexit that’s guaranteed to be delivered as promised. After two sell-out runs, Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky’s hit political comedy returns to London’s King’s Head Theatre this summer with a new cast.
I wonder if in years to come we’ll look back on the ‘Theatre of Brexit’ in the same way we analyse Shakespeare’s treatment of Agincourt, or the Trojan Wars in Sophocles?
Brexit is a farce. Of all the things Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky’s Brexit could have been, their critically-acclaimed satire about the current Euro-debacle is not the play this mired, political sham of ours deserves – it’s the one we need right now.
