Matt Cooper speaks to the nation...

It's late 2014 and Britain's coalition government has only six months left to run. The Conservative Prime Minister and his Liberal Democrat Deputy haven't spoken for months, the economy has flat-lined and his MPs are threatening to defect right, left and centre. Having sold off his party HQ and with his time running out, Lib Dem leader Matt Cooper has to make a series of last desperate gambles to save the party he loves...

COALITION is a new play written by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky. It is a fast-moving and funny satire on the state of the current coalition government, from the point-of-view of the deputy prime minister and Liberal Democrat Leader.

COALITION is looking for post-Edinburgh producers! To contact the authors for more information or to obtain the rights, email Tom Salinsky or call The Spontaneity Shop on 020 7788 4080.
