THIS DRAMATISATION OF THE EARLY SDP STRIKES A COMIC, RELEVANT CHORD
In 1981, Labour MPs Shirley Williams, Bill Rodgers and Roy Jenkins joined David Owen at his home in Limehouse, east London. Their mission was to thrash out a serious alternative to their party which, under the leadership of Michael Foot, was proving divisive. Now, in 2017, it’s not hard to gauge why Steve Waters’s bitterly funny new play about this “gang of four” and the formation of the SDP strikes such a chord. As Jeremy Corbyn continues on his egotistical journey towards self sabotage, Labour is more fragmented, more unelectable than ever before.
