Andrew Louden will star as the Labour MP James Bonney in the premiere production directed by Georgia Leanne Harris.
James Bonney, the swashbuckling moderate, the (ladies) man of the people doesn’t take kindly to enemies within – not his new leader who believes in something called socialism nor his local rival who thinks he’s sold out.
Whose business is it if he’s having an affair? His political rival lives with his daughter while his agent fancies his wife. No one said life was perfect.
Can James maintain his position, crush internal enemies and secure his place in history? And what does he have to do to bag that shadow cabinet post?
Presented by Red Needle Productions, James Bonney MP is a new political comedy by Ian Buckley. It will receive its world premiere at the White Bear Theatre from the 20th June.
Andrew Loudon was Father in The Railway Children at King’s Cross Theatre. He has also appeared at the Finborough Theatre in both The Oedipus Table and the English premiere of Robert McLellan’s The Flouers o’Edinburgh.
He will be joined by Malcolm Jeffries, Ciaran Lonsdale, Karen McCaffrey, Louise Tyler and Elian West.
Meanwhile, as well as being directed by Georgia Leanne Harris, the production will be designed by Oscar Selfridge.
James Bonney MP will play at the White Bear Theatre from the 20th June until the 8th July. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://whitebeartheatre.co.uk/play/james-bonney-mp/#more-1806
