Résumé: The General Election, 7 May 2015: 20.30-22.00. A fictional London polling station. Set in the final ninety minutes of polling day 2015, live and in real time. Britain is the longest unbroken democracy in the world. Every five years we assert our right as citizens to uphold or replace our government – but, characteristically, we do it in the most unremarkable and understated of ways. For most of us, it’s the only time we get to see inside the dingy back room of our local parish church, walk the linoleum floor of the municipal library or, as in this case, return to our primary school with chairs that are too small and memories that flood back from the distant past. These unglamorous settings are where history turns.

Presse : "It’s hard amid such a diverse melee and incredible team effort to single anyone out but hilarious Paul Chahidi almost steals the show as an independent candidate beadily obsessed with scrapping a one-way system." Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph

"With so many famous names in the cast, Rourke’s production occasionally feels like a charity gala." Michael Billington for The Guardian
