The year is 2006. Late one night, a young, unknown MP is jeered at by three mysterious London vagabonds, 'Hail to thee, Leader of the Liberal Democrats,' 'Hail to thee, King-Maker,' 'Hail to thee, Deputy Prime Minister'... Clegg's story begins. A ruthless Shakespearean interpretation of our beloved Deputy PM's political trajectory. Winner of Best New Writing at Oxford University. 'Incredible ... constantly clever and never predictable' (Oxford Theatre Review). There will be laughs, tears, and one serious message for future political generations: 'I dare do all that may become a Lib Dem - Who dares do more is none.'
