Angela - 7 Days to Save Europe
Post Brexit, Hugh Costello's drama imagines the dilemma faced by both the French and the Germans and asks, can or should anything be done to save Europe?
Following the nominations for France's Presidential elections, Europe's political mainstream has been rocked by the rising popularity of Marine Le Pen's far right, Front National. Hugh Costello's play imagines a political pact forged between French Republicans and Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats, aimed at limiting Le Pen's ascendency and preserving the European Union. But as with all pacts there is more politicking than there first appears. Whilst preservation of the Union is high on the agenda, it's the survival of Angela Merkel in Germany's forthcoming elections which is the real goal of our key player, Heike Menzel (Haydn Gwynne).
