One of the year’s most anticipated comedies, Corbyn the Musical: the Motorcycle Diaries
is a no-holds barred political satire which - unlike the pacifistic Labour leader
- pulls no punches against politicians of all parties.
The show sees Jeremy Corbyn facing a nuclear stand-off with Russian President Vladimir
Putin. With pressure mounting on all sides, Corbyn has to face up to the biggest
challenge of his career. But the solution lies in the story of the fateful motorbike
holiday apparently taken by a young Corbyn and his then-lover Diane Abbott in 1970s
pre-unification East Germany.
Featuring fictional appearances from Boris Johnson, Tony Blair and Ed Miliband amongst
many others, Corbyn the Musical has been described as a cross between The Book of
Mormon and The Thick of It.
With original music and composition by Jen Green (The Bachelor Girls, Battle of Britain
at 75 - BBC Radio 2) this script comes from the comic writing talents behind successful
independent podcast “Political Takeout”, long-featured as one of the most popular
political and comedy podcasts in the UK.
