The Party
  • Camden Fringe

It is the wine cellar of 10 Downing Street. Upstairs, the drink is flowing freely. But down here, two men are getting randy against the wine racks: sounds like a party to you, doesnt it? Well, youd be wrong " its just your average run-of-the-mill work drinks. With champagne. And Cheese. In the Cabinet Room. In the heart of the government. In the midst of lockdown. This is what the Tory SpAd, Samuel Fitzgerald, tells himself on the evening of April 16th, 2021, when he escapes downstairs with the handsome waiter, Dean, for a quick bang against the bottles. Samuel initially seems keen to get back to the celebration upstairs, but it soon becomes clear that he would rather be anywhere but the party. Dean, meanwhile, harbours secret ambitions of his own. With political hypocrisy heavy in the air, and Samuels superior, Adrienne, keen to get it off with him by the end of the night, both men are thrust into a crucible in which they must question their careers and their consciences. THE PARTY is a new, laugh-a-minute, lightning-quick comedy reflecting on both the farce and/or tragedy that played out on our national stage this year: Partygate.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
