Two of the Featured Show campaigns I’ve been working on recently have been two plays tapping into the political unrest of our times: the return of Tom Salinsky and Robert Khan‘s Brexit comedy to the King’s Head Theatre and the Exchange Theatre’s tenth-anniversary revival of Jean-Paul Sartre‘s classic The Flies.
Scroll down for my on-the-night reactions on visits to each.
