Young Corbyn: An Origin Story

Presented by Dark Mutters

Witness the creation of the legend.

Gasp(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn successfully moves a motion calling for dentists to be employed by the NHS rather than private contractors.

Cheer(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn literally ends apartheid in South Africa.

High-five(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn is really, genuinely not an anti-Semite actually.

Young Corbyn charts the rise and rise of real, actual man, the Right Honourable Jeremy Bernard Corbyn MP, told through the mixed (biased) media of (among others) choric song, flash-dance and rhythm gymnastics.

This is the show the critics are calling: “Young Corbyn: An Origin Story”.

Press & Reviews

Praise for previous work:

On Holly Morgan: Madonna or Whore -

"Genuine creativity...heartfelt, light-hearted and empowering. It’s one of these rare breaths of fresh air that leaves you with a desire to start a revolution." - Miro Magazine

"Morgan’s script is tight and delivers brilliant punchlines and smart observations, giving us space to laugh and to think...The banter between them is perfectly timed." - The Wee Review

On 7 Crazy Bitches -

"Holly Morgan – superstar - and Tom Moores – pet man - create a beautiful piece of madness at the fringe" -

On Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas -

"A fully theatricalised lunatic performance from Moores. Both are excellent. Moores walks around like a badly pulled puppet with demented eyes that might pop it if not for his aviators."

On Major Tom -

"Sprinkled with unexpected Moores' hands Tom is a character I want to get to know" - Fringe Guru
