William Shakespeare's Brexit

Boris Starling
NZD $32.99

A political sh*tstorm in five acts.

'Two parties, both alike in dishonour, in fair Westminster, where we lay our scene...'

Written by the Bard himself, with a little help from parody writer and novelist Boris Starling, this wonderful 'comedy of errors' will retell the tragic story of the UK's acrimonious break from the EU, with our most prominent politicians the key characters in this Shakespearean pastiche: Michael Gove in the plotting 'Iago' role, the doomed David Cameron as 'Macbeth', Theresa May as 'Julia Caesar', Jeremy Corbyn unable to decide on anything as 'Hamlet', and, of course, Boris Johnson as the feckless old rogue 'Sir John Falstaff'.

A most original take of the defining political era of our time - this will be the perfect satire for anyone interested in politics, humour, or even a little bit of Am-Dram.
