Brexit The Musical (Strong and Stable Productions)

By | Published on Monday 7 August 2017

In light of the last two years, you’d be forgiven for overlooking anything with the word ‘Brexit’ in the title when perusing this year’s Fringe programme, but in this case at least, you’d be missing out! Written by Chris Bryant, this witty new musical has a barrage of catchy songs delivered by a joyously talented cast. Accompanied by a live band, the musical numbers propel the audience through the story of Brexit. All the familiar faces are there: Boris Johnson; Theresa May; Michael Gove and that woman Jeremy Corbyn didn’t quite high five. The set leaves a little to be desired, but that doesn’t take away from the show’s appeal. Overall, a hilarious experience you can get behind, no matter what your political alliance.

C, until 28 Aug.
