Zeitgeist Tapes: Limehouse

Mar 25, 07:30 AM

This month Emma and Steve are delighted to be joined by Steve Waters, playwrite and author of the recent highly successful play Limehouse. 

Limehouse is a fictionalised account of the day the 'Gang of Four' broke away from the Labour Party to form the SDP. Originally performed at the Donmar Warehouse, this play is still very timely, especially after the formation of The Independent Group of MPs.
