Corbyn the Musical:
The Motorcycle Diaries
By Bobby Friedman and Rupert Myers
One of the year’s most anticipated comedies, Corbyn the Musical: the Motorcycle Diaries is a no-holds barred political satire which – unlike the pacifistic Labour leader – pulls no punches against politicians of all parties.
The show sees Jeremy Corbyn facing a nuclear stand-off with Russian President Vladimir Putin. With pressure mounting on all sides, Corbyn has to face up to the biggest challenge of his career. But the solution lies in the story of the fateful motorbike holiday apparently taken by a young Corbyn and his then-lover Diane Abbott in 1970s pre-unification East Germany.
Featuring fictional appearances from Boris Johnson, Tony Blair and Ed Miliband amongst many others, Corbyn the Musical has been described as a cross between The Book of Mormon and The Thick of It.
With original music and composition by Jen Green (The Bachelor Girls, Battle of Britain at 75 – BBC Radio 2) this script comes from the comic writing talents behind successful independent podcast “Political Takeout”, long-featured as one of the most popular political and comedy podcasts in the UK.
