2017 V36

The Mermaids Performing Arts Fund

One hotel room. One impossible scandal. Two men who don’t know what they want. Through the story of Marcus and Sam, watch the machinations of both a complex political satire and an emotionally fraught love story. This highly original piece of new writing portrays the romance of a middle-aged MP and the rent boy he employs. Watch the power dynamic shift between the two in this darkly comic analogy of the UK’s road to Brexit. Set in one claustrophobic hotel room, snapshots of Marcus and Sam’s failed romance play out in reverse chronology. Thought-provoking, biting and at times hilarious.
