The smash hit play Coalition fresh from its Edinburgh run, travels to the Pleasance Theatre in Islington, London, documenting the final days of Lib Dem leader Matt Cooper.

The fast-paced political comedy takes place in 2015 leaving the coalition a few months to govern before the next general election. The relationship between the Conservative prime minister and his Lib Dem deputy is far from functional, as issues of an economic slump further add to their strains.

With frustrated MPs threatening to defect across the political spectrum, Cooper’s efforts become directed towards desperate gambles and a measure of last minute attempts in order to save the party he loves.
