About the event
A new comedy based on the recent MPs expenses scandal.
Newly elected Labour MP Meg Jones finds herself in the front line of the expenses scandal, while her husband Doug falls for a classic newspaper honey trap. Their lives and their marriage disintegrate before the relentlessly cruel headlines. But was it all their fault - or are they convenient scapegoats for much bigger fraudsters? The financiers who surrounded them were having their own troubles, and the journalists who exposed them were not as clean as they liked to sound.
This is the third play written and directed as a collaboration between director Joanna Turner and playwright Francis Beckett. Writer, director and cast discuss the play as it is being written so that the end result is a collaborative effort.
