Teddy Hall

SUMMARY

The year is 2006. On the way home from a hard day’s campaigning, a young, unknown MP finds himself jeered at by three mysterious London vagabonds.

“Hail to thee, Leader of the Liberal Democrats.”

“Hail to thee, King-Maker.”

“Hail to thee, Deputy Prime Minister.”

Nick Clegg’s story begins...

The Tragedie of MacClegg is a Shakespearean look at the political career of our beloved Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg. It isn't a 'political' play in that we do not attack Clegg or his decision to join the coalition; his 'Tragedie' in how he was transformed, almost overnight, from being the new political hope of Britain to being represented as its latest love-to-hate villain.

A brand new tragicomedy for the modern age – there will be laughs, tears, and one serious message for all future political generations:

“I dare do all that may become a Lib Dem;

Who dares do more is none.”
