A new look at New Labour. A timely new satirical musical in the run up to the General Election.

A Prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise – Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527)

In the war between North and South, King John’s northern forces are no match for Queen Marguerita until Peter, the Kingmaker, persuades the heir-apparent, Prince Gordon, to enlist the aid of charming Prince Anthony . All goes well until, to Gordon’s fury, Anthony ascends the throne and enters into a rash Crusade….

This satirical musical by Bill Robinson (former Special Adviser to a Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Jeremy Noble portrays a bitter Jacobean power struggle. It is a timeless tale of friendship and betrayal at the highest level.

Any resemblance to modern British politics is, of course, entirely deliberate.
