"Politics has become too serious a matter to be left to politicians"

TS Eliot

Acclaimed director Max Stafford-Clark teams up with some of our most celebrated playwrights for an evening of political satire.

Alistair Beaton and Stella Feehily make merry with the machinations behind the closed doors of our major political parties. David Hare attacks the cult of the free market, through a visitation from its chief priestess. 

Mark Ravenhill eyes the cost of our military adventures as a soldier’s mother does all she can to avoid hearing the news she dreads. And Caryl Churchill imagines a world where even language is sponsored.

Funny, angry, and playful, A View from Islington North is smart entertainment for the head and heart.

Book your tickets now, and be parachuted into the safest seat in town.
