Phill's coalition blues

Saw Essex icon Phill Jupitus starring as oily Tory grandee Sir Francis Whitford in Coalition at the Pleasance Theatre in Caledonian Road this week. Jupitus proved himself adept at playing the camp Conservative, complete with white shoes and a fine repertoire of polishing fresh fruit. He also dons a Yeovil scarf for his five-yearly visit to the constituency. Decent play too, a prescient parody of the current Lib-Dem woes, though I doubt Chris Huhne and Nick Clegg will be watching it.


  1. Really good play, plus a big audience. Can't recommend the Pleasance enough - especially as it's got a fab pub/bar. Nicola

  2. Yes and it's only a tenner to get in - great value!
