'Why I can smile... and bumble while I smile.'

The story of Boris Johnson as a Shakespearean tragicomedy, 'Boris Rex' follows its perfidious anti-hero from the boorish days of Oxford University, right through to a blood-soaked General Election, to spin a murky tale of ambition, back-stabbing and ultimately.. a national catastrophe.

Borrowing elements from both Julius Caesar and Richard III, the play blends original verse with newly-penned pentameters, and follows on from Charlie Dupré's 2017 Edinburgh Fringe hit, 'Macblair' (Top 6 hot picks for political shows - The Scotsman)
