Angela is a ‘Blair Babe’, trusted by Gordon, champion of a £59 million new PFI hospital and now on course for a promotion to the Cabinet. She is also wife to the too-smooth Larry, mother to a hormonal teenager and carer of her father, a union man. When an old friend and journalist manages to get her hands on a document that could end her political career, it is obvious that someone is threatening to thwart her ambitions.
As a successful socialist however, she couldn’t have got where she is today without making tough decisions; and always with the greater good in mind.
A crucial and up- to-the-minute play for our New Labour times about political choices and the inevitable price to be paid.
