In a humble garden shed in deepest Suburbia, four young idealists have decided to form a new political party to save the world from itself. The new fifth member, Duncan, sets about saving the world from them. Party is a comic play about small minds tackling big issues - China, sex trafficking, cycle lanes, unfair trade coffee, whether to call the party 'The Friendly Party' or 'Gladios'. And when, exactly, they should break to eat a cake. Tom Basden's hilarious, critically-acclaimed comedy was seen at the Edinburgh Festival in 2009 and the Arts Theatre, London, in 2010.
"Tom Basden's astonishingly well written and incredibly funny debut play about four idealists deciding to form a new political party comes to the West End ... It's by turns hilarious and incisive, poignant and tragic. Don't miss this ..." - Time Ou
