SUMMARY

A political silent comedy that isn’t really about politics, The Election charts the final hours of a doomed campaign. Panic is setting in, the party leader is slowly falling to pieces, and his aides are trying desperately to keep the ship from sinking. This is what would happen if the Marx Brothers were making theatre today. Combining the frenzy and farce of election night with the slapstick irreverence of silent comedy, The Election is politics with an edge - a silly, silly edge. ‘Make no mistake, this is a young company with real talent and theatrical vision’ (FringeReview.co.uk).
