Game of Governments

The natives of Tiny Island are restless. The powers that be are disgruntled. Then all hell breaks loose. Leadership changes hands frequently and violently. Each new government is worse than the last. The exhausted citizens are left worrying about what really counts: who's going to collect their bins? We're living in 'you-couldn't-make-it-up' times. Whatever your political beliefs, the lunatic farce of the political establishment has become so commonplace as to be mundane. Which is terrifying; what's the next insane thing to happen? Game of Governments is an over the top theatrical joke, with a gentle reminder that politicians are supposed to work for us. Aren't they? Feeling like the world of theatre needed a light-hearted and just plain silly comedy, Game of Governments started as an idea by director and playwright Geoffrey Williams back in 2019. From a single night's show, we are now at the stage of putting on 3 runs this July and August. It's a non-partisan show about the absurdities of politics, political systems and the people who live with the consequences
