THE ANARCHIST's ARMS A Political Comedy for the Stage in Three Acts THE YEAR IS 2020, and London - the capital of Europe - teeters on the edge of a general conflagration, while a million demonstrators take to the streets in a kaleidoscope of focus groups Errol Flynt, the newly re-elected Mayor, looks on in quiet despair, and delegates ambitious Robert Greene, ace-pampleteer and Deputy-Deputy Mayor - on his afternoon off - to enter the fray as observer. On Fleet Street, hydrogen-powered vehicles form the greatest traffic jam in history. At The Arms, Robert Greene takes up - or avoids - the issues with the tavern's guests ...Among a cast of thousands, enter ...Horace Baker, long-serving retainer, amateur rebel and suspected arsonist ...George Foxxe, last proprietor of The Arms, who has been drugged up to his eyeballs by his new "wife" on behalf of the greedy Conglomerate ...Mr Shine, the ghostly tour guide whose circular tour never ends ...and Elaine Wichell, student of the paranormal, who sees "layers", and acts as companion to Margaret Foxxe, George's powerful sister over from Manhattan to sniff out assets...Enter Stage Extreme Right: the Ancient Order of Frothblowers, a group of businessmen on the town, who are worse, Margaret Foxxe says, than "the thugs". Socialist or socialite, anarchist or arsonist, merchant banker or beggar, lawyer or ghost, all are welcome - or not - at THE ANARCHIST'S ARMS...- A political comedy to agitate every part of the spectrum - and beyond.
