Frazzled Prime Minister, Clare Scarsdale, is back home for what might be the last time. She is happily embracing multiculturalism one Bombay Dry Gin at a time, when her chances of a relaxing Election Eve are shattered by unexpected guests. Her “domestic” policy choices soon take centre-stage as the news-cycle and spin-cycle compete to manage a fast evolving laundry-basket of issues.

Let’s face it, with enemies like hers, who needs family?

Imran Yusuf is from London and has attended the Royal Court Young Writers Programme and the Forum of Young European Playwrights in Wiesbaden. His plays have received staged readings at the Bush, Arcola and Leicester Square theatres. An early work, Stumped, won the first ever national playwriting prize in Pakistan and played in Karachi, Delhi, Kolkata and Melbourne.
