Boris Rex

Falling Sparrow presents 


by Charlie Dupré 


5th - 10th August 





Part of our Camden Fringe Season 


Why I can smile.. and bumble while I smile.

The story of Boris Johnson as a Shakespearean tragicomedy, BORIS REX follows its perfidious anti-hero from the boorish days of Oxford University, right through to a blood-soaked General Election, to spin a murky tale of ambition, back-stabbing and ultimately... a national catastrophe.

Borrowing elements from both Julius Caesar and Richard III, the play fuses original verse with newly-penned pentameters, spoken word, comedy and rap, and a visual aesthetic somewhere between Greek tragedy and dreadful clown.
