Whipping It Up

Steve Thompson’s scandalously funny satire which blows the lid off the Despatch box and reveals the true secrets locked in the Whips’ safe.

Westminster runs the country, but the whips run Westminster

The new Tory government is facing dissent over its latest Bill. With a majority of only three, the Whip’s office is out in full force, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the stray in line.

But they’re in for a long night-with sexual blackmail, boy scouts rioting in Whitehall, the PM golfing with the president and five Tory rebels on the loose-could this be the beginning of a leadership challenge?

Starring Richard Wilson (One Foot in the Grave) in a rare stage appearance.
