About the event

In a world where it is North Islington, only one man stands between Holloway and Camden.

Witness the creation of the legend.

Gasp(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn successfully moves a motion calling for dentists to be employed by the NHS rather than private contractors.

Cheer(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn literally ends apartheid in South Africa.

High-five(!) as a young Jeremy Corbyn is really, genuinely not an anti-Semite actually.

Young Corbyn (a new play for Momentum's West Byfleet and New Haw Branch AGM) charts the rise and rise of real, actual man, the Right Honourable Jeremy Bernard Corbyn MP, told through the mixed (biased) media of (among others) choric song, flash-dance and rhythm gymnastics.

This is the show the critics are calling: “Young Corbyn: An Origin Story”.

Co-written by Holly Morgan (7 Crazy Bitches; Madonna or Whore) and Tom Moores (Major Tom; Alice's Adventures Underground), and featuring horror-comedy legends The Twins Macabre (BBC3's Live at the Electric; Radio 4's Sketchorama), Young Corbyn is the League of Gentlemen's Legs Akimbo meets Margaret Thatcher: Queen of Soho.

A loving, celebratory, yet satirical, bildungsroman based on the early years of Jeremy Corbyn, Young Corbyn: An Origin Story is camp yet meaningful and features lots of lovely jumpers. There are songs, dance, a greek chorus, and jumpers. But, most importantly, there are jumpers.
