I would admit to being slightly unprepared

an evening which kicked off with me being marched to the small stage to both impersonate Brexit and then be married to Theresa May by a grisly Mogg-alike figure. The capacity audience were polite enough to give me a generous round of applause as I slunk back to my corner seat to try and make some sense of my new marital status, but I soon relaxed into appreciation of the sheer joy of this evening of theatrical talent emerging.

This first work that risked my contribution was called ‘A Play About Theresa May’ and was both topical and clever, with Amie M Marie giving an uncannily nuanced version of our current Prime Minister albeit with a clown nose.
