London – Theatre: ‘Party’ by Tom Basden, starring St Andrews alumni Tickets (£8 online plus booking fee or £10 on the door)
In a humble garden shed in deepest suburbia, four young idealists have decided to form a new political party to save the world from itself. The new fifth member, Duncs, sets about saving the world from them. Party is a comic play about small minds tackling big issues – China, sex trafficking, cycle lanes, unfair trade coffee, whether to call the party ‘The Friendly Party’ or ‘Gladios’. And when, exactly, they should break to eat a cake.
Tom Basden’s hilarious, critically acclaimed comedy was seen at the Edinburgh Festival in 2009 and the Arts Theatre, London, in 2010. Now, in these precarious and uncertain times, Off the Rocks Productions are bringing you their take on this farcical political sitcom.
