Feed the Beast

BA Acting Autumn Rep Season - PATS Studio Theatre
15th, 22nd, 28th November 2017, 2nd December 2017

A ferociously funny, topical look at the rocky relations between our press and politicians in a world of spin doctors and Leveson Inquiries.


Michael is moving into 10 Downing Street determined that, with a country to run, there will be no charm offensives. There’s no time for lunches with the press while children are living in poverty, and certainly no time to comment on a minister’s illicit affair while the country needs more nurses.

However, when his family’s private life looks set to be the ‘next big story’, Michael seeks help from a press secretary who advises, ‘Feed the beast before it turns on you.’ Can Michael keep politics centre stage or will he become the big story himself?
