Edinburgh Festival Fringe review: Brexit

Brexit has slick performances and a decent enough script, but the venue is uncomfortably hot and it feels like it should be an evening performance.

All that said, if you like Yes, Minister-type humour, and are as sick of all the Brexit lunacy as I am, you’ll enjoy it.

Could have done with being 15 minutes shorter.

The plot centres on a new Tory PM whose mission is to unite his party’s warring factions with his masterplan for a final Brexit deal.

Trouble is, eh…what was it again? (Horribly close to real life).
Starring Tim Bentinck (The Archers), Jo Caulfield (in serious mode as an Angela Merkel doppelganger), Hal Cruttenden, Pippa Evans and Mike McShane.
