Making a Song and Dance about the War on Terror

Written by Alistair Beaton

The two self-appointed heroes of democracy and Christianity congratulate themselves on ridding the world  of dictatorship.  Meanwhile, their war activates a global clash of cultures waged with words of mass destruction and smoking guns.

This hilarious, savage and thought-provoking satirical play follows the development of the so-called war on terror from 9/11 right up to the present day.  Along the way, Follow My Leader asks awkward questions about Britain’s role as faithful poodle of the United States.

Having nailed the politics of spin in the West-End hit comedy Feelgood with Nigel Planner and Henry Goodman in the cast, Alistair Beaton turns his attention to international politics with this scorching satire on the new world order.
