Featuring words by David Shirreff, music by Rusell Sarre and Frederick Appleby it is directed by Lucy Appleby with musical direction by Frederick Appleby.
The musical is described as Gilbert & Sullivan meets Brecht & Weill, with some Tom Lehrer thrown in, "a romp through the fiasco and aftermath of the June 2016 Referendum."
Brexit the Musical is the fourth musical by the Shirreff/Sarre writing team after Broke Britannia! (2010 – London and Edinburgh), EuroCrash! (2012-13 London, Berlin, Frankfurt), and Barack & the Beanstalk (London 2014).
Tickets for the transfer are now on sale.
