The Swan Theatre Company presents

Whipping It Up

By Steve Thompson

Directed by Alison Maynard-Griffin

Monday 19th - Saturday 24th January 2015

It's a week before Christmas and the new Tory government is facing dissent over its latest Bill. With a majority of only three, the Whips' office is out in full force, and they'll stop at nothing to keep the strays in line.

But they're in for a long night: boy scouts are rioting in Whitehall, the PM's golfing with the President, five Tory rebels are on the loose and the Chief Whip's playing at Santa - could this be the beginnings of a leadership challenge?

Whipping it Up is a fast-moving switchback of a play, with more twists and double-bluffs than a poker game between conmen.

 

Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
