Centred around the increasingly strained relationship between two brothers, the play explores the EPA’s unstable leadership and how the group exploits the idea of diversity to pursue their aims… all to the tune of the pub’s karaoke night.

Playwright Chris Thompson promises that this ‘thrilling political theatre’ will make audiences come face to face with challenging ideas, explore the human need to express emotions and be heard, and understand the exploitive tactics used by the far right. Chris’ debut play, Carthage, premiered at Finborough early this year and was reviewed as ‘witty, sharp and well observed – a performance that packed a real punch’.

The play is showing until 25 October at Bush Theatre, Shepherd’s Bush, London.
