Refugees, what are they good for?

In a fractured post-Brexit Britain, the stage is set for a political showdown. Radio talk show host Parry Posh knows controversy is good for the ratings. With a volatile panel including an antagonistic right-wing journalist and a violent white nationalist invited to discuss the mounting refugee crisis, has he finally bitten off more than he can chew?

A new devised play exploring the growing polarisation of modern politics, and the damage it inflicts on both sides; as well as the culpability of the mainstream media.
