Tony Blair, Nick Clegg, Rishi Sunak – She’s hardly the first Southerner to represent a Northern constituency. What she lacks in political experience, she makes up for in… charm?

When nepotism hire of the year, Perdita, is appointed as MP for the fictional Lancashire town of Ardenton, she thinks that her wealth of social experience and the fact that she’s the former Home Secretary’s Daughter, are all the qualifications that she needs, how wrong she is.

‘She’s certainly driven’, ‘Yeah, driven me over the edge!’. Perdita’s eyes are set on the top of the political ladder, but when the needs of her constituents start to get in the way and she’s faced with the choice of helping a young, queer constituent who’s in desperate need of support or her own political ambitions, which will she choose?

Starring Phoebe Batteson-Brown & Eoin McKenna, soon to be on BBC1.

Metamorph Theatre

Metamorph Theatre is a theatre company that helps develop new writing into full length productions. We strive to make classics feel like modern plays and made modern plays become classics. We focus on work that explores grey areas in our society and sheds light on issues in our world.

Inspired by theatre companies like Complicite and the work of Mike Leigh they created their first play ‘The Good Landlord’ through multiple improvisations and workshops with writer Michael Ross. They continue to develop new writing and focus on creating work that is innovative and created in an interesting way.

Press & Reviews

PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS WORK
