Boris the Third
Presented By: Something for the Weekend
Boris the Third is a comedy imagining of what that school play might have been like. Will young Boris play the clown, charming his critics, or will he be remembered as the villain?
A possible origin story for one of the most colourful and divisive figures in modern British politics. This is one illicit party you won’t want to miss.
Written and directed by Adam Meggido, starring Mischief Theatre favourite, Harry Kershaw, as Boris.
