William Shakespeare’s Brexit

William Shakespeare’s Brexit

£9.99

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’.

BORIS JOHNSON:To leave or not to leave, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of outrag'd Remainers,Or to take arms against a sea of Leavers,And by opposing end them? To leave, to stay,No more; and by leaving to say we endThe EU, and the thousand petty rulesThat we adhere to, - 'tis a consummationDevoutly to be wish'd. To stay, to leave; To stay, perchance to leave: ay, there's the rub;For in that move to leave what dreams may come,When we have shuffl'd off this Brussels yoke...'This is our story. All Brexit's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...' Written by the Bard himself, with a little help from novelist Boris Starling, this wonderful 'comedy of errors' retells the tragic story of the UK's acrimonious break from the EU, written in wonderful iambic pentameter. A story of cynical electioneering and poisoned political scheming, featuring the likes of Boris Johnson, Theresa May and David Cameron, this is a most original take of the defining event of our time - and the perfect satire for anyone interested in politics, humour, or even a little bit of Am-dram.
