The State: It s there to represent the people. Isn t it? How do you decide who to vote for? George, the leader of the opposition, seems to have a strong personality, he s certainly committed to the socialist values of the Labour Party, he s a powerful communicator and believes in telling the truth. But is that enough to end 13 years of Conservative rule, and convince the media to back his campaign? His followers seem to think he can lead the party to victory, but as the political machine threatens to engulf them, can they spin their way out? In this play, Hare takes a refreshing look at the questions of democracy, instinct, social justice and betrayal that still dominate the political and media agenda today.
