The Whip

Audio described in-house.

As the 19th century dawns in London,politicians of all parties gather to abolish the slave trade once and for all.

But the price of freedom turns out to be a multi-billion pound bailout for slave owners rather than those enslaved.

As morality and cunning compete amongst men thirsty for power, two women navigate their way to the true seat of political influence, challenging members of parliament who dare deny them their say.

In this provocative new play, directed by Kimberley Sykes (Dido, Queen of Carthage, 2017; As You Like It, 2019), the personal collides with the political to ask what is the right thing to do and how much must it cost?
