Who speaks for Europe – hard right, muffled left or…?
A new play for our times by Ian Grant
Stella Herbert believes passionately in the values of Europe and detests the politics of the far-right. Nicholas Formio, leader of the British Independence Party, targets the General Election in May 2015. Ally Erskine, one of Stella’s students, and John Dove, a charismatic poet/lecturer, urge Stella to stand for Parliament against Formio.
Ally feels demeaned by Stella; Stella does not know she loves John; John (the lover of Lady Mary, Stella’s mother) has social pretensions but no money. Ally sucks John into the worlds of pornography and passport-trafficking. Stella takes on Formio in the May 2015 election campaign and the British establishment and the Shoreditch underbelly collide.
This is now, this is what is happening in the Spring of 2015. UKIP is gaining momentum, the case for Britain in Europe is on the back foot, who speaks?
