Political intrigue at its finest
Narrating the critical first 100 days in power for a new prime minister, Feed the Beast comes to the New Wolsey from May 6 to 16 and is directed by New Wolsey artistic director Peter Rowe.
“You’re asking me to waste my time making sure some newspaper isn’t going to be mean?”
Michael is moving into Number 10 Downing Street and there will be no charm offensives with this Prime Minister, not with a country to run.
There’s no time for lunches with the press while there are children living in poverty.
And there’s certainly no time to comment on a minister’s illicit affair while the country needs more nurses.
But when his family’s private life looks set to be the next big story, Michael seeks help from a press secretary who advises, “Feed the beast before it turns on you”.
Can Michael keep politics centre stage or will he become the big story himself?
The cast for Feed The Beast includes Kacey Ainsworth (best known for playing Little Mo in Eastenders), Gerald Kyd, Amy Marston, Shaun Mason, Paul Moriarty (EastEnders and A Touch of Frost), Aimee Powell, Badria Timimi and Tristram Wymark.
