THE MULLAH OF DOWNING STREET
A new comedy by Imran Yusuf
Playing at The Theatre
Wed 21st-Sat 24th Aug
Frazzled Prime Minister, Clare Scarsdale, is back home for what might be the last time. She is happily embracing multiculturalism one Bombay Dry Gin at a time, when her chances of a relaxing Election Eve are shattered by unexpected guests. Her “domestic” policy choices soon take centre-stage as the news-cycle and spin-cycle compete to manage a fast evolving laundry-basket of issues.
Let’s face it, with enemies like hers, who needs family?
