by David Shirreff (words) Russell Sarre & Frederick Appleby (music)
“BREXIT MEANS BREXIT”, but what the hell does that mean? Only this musical drama
gets close to an answer as it takes you on a romp through the fiasco and fallout
of the June 2016 Referendum. Think Brecht & Weill meet Gilbert & Sullivan. “Boris
is the answer to everybody’s prayers”…or is he?
Cameron, Osborne, Gove, Farage, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, and dozens more of the
usual suspects strut their stuff on a crowded stage. With guest appearances by Jean-Claude
Juncker, Donald Tusk, Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel.
Wicked words and great music from the Shirreff/Sarre/Appleby team.
There have been three previous shows by Shirreff/Sarre, known as the Crunch Trilogy:
Broke Britannia! (2010), EuroCrash! (2012) and Barack & The Beanstalk (2014). That
was meant to be it…..until Brexit reared its head, baying for treatment!
Others “will have their work cut out to match the wit and pace of this musical romp,”
Mail on Sunday
A “rich and heady combination of intelligent, comical wordplay and fast moving, chaotic
characters,” Remote Goat
