In the wake of a global shift in politics that saw reality star Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States of America, Nigel Farage's Brexit campaign win the majority and the Conservative party seek out a deal with the DUP, Theatre Renegade presents In Response To... Politics.
In Response To...Politics will feature musical performances, speeches and pieces written specifically for the night as a response to the current political turmoil. We come together to raise our voices; in protest, in solidarity.
With performances from Madalena Alberto (Evita - Dominion Theatre and UK Tour, Les Miserables 25th Anniversary UK Tour and Zorro The Musical - Garrick Theatre), Pippa Nixon (A Midsummer Night's Dream - RSC, John Carter - feature film directed by Oscar-winner Andrew Stanton and The Tempest - Shakespeare's Globe), Gloria Onitiri (Caroline or Change - Chichester Festival Theatre, Taming of the Shrew - Shakespeare's Globe and The Bodyguard - Adelphi Theatre) and Nigel Richards (The Phantom of the Opera - Her Majesty's Theatre, Me, Myself & I - Orange Tree and A Tale of Two Cities - HBO).
All profits from the evening will be donated to Liberty, to protect civil liberties and promote human rights.
