Brexit, the Musical
EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL, 2017
BREXIT, THE MUSICAL
July-August 2017, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Somewhere out there, there’s a plan for Brexit.
There’s just one small hitch – its writer has amnesia and no-one else knows where it is.
It’s up to our hero, Boris Johnson, to find it. Devastated by his monumental cock-up of winning the referendum, this is the only way for Boris to gain redemption and save the nation from Brexit.
Ably assisted by his sidekick, Govey, our hero’s mission brings him into contact with many colourful characters – the recently retired Dave & Sam, the ambitious Andrea, the depressed Jeremy and the wannabe dictator, Theresa.
Will Boris find the plan and save the day?
Brexit the Musical lifts the lid on what’s been going on behind the scenes since the referendum, and is set to take the Edinburgh Fringe by storm this summer. A must see.

“Brexit the Musical is the dose of hilarity you need injected into the gloomy political picture ahead.”
“This could transfer to London and run and run: they would just keep updating!”
“Good comedy timing, high-quality vocals and clever direction”
“Stomach-achingly hilarious… pointedly perfect caricatures”
“The cast impress with their sick choreography, while the original songs featured are hook-laden and often very funny”
“Brexit the Musical hits all the right notes. The musical numbers are exciting and catchy, the humour is silly and fun. The EU referendum has never been so fabulous."
THE 730 REVIEW
“Brexit the Musical is an exuberant and scathing piece which offers political satire that rings true.”
“This is a fun-filled show that lampoons our politicians with such a wicked zest and no matter which way you voted it’s a joyous romp that the capacity audience absolutely loved.”
