EdFringe Review: UKIP! The Musical at theSpace @ Surgeons Hall

UKIP! The Musical

A show called UKIP! The Musical is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and intrigue many at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Written and directed by RADA graduates, this production is welcoming packed audiences for all the right reasons. 

A "satirical swipe at the most radical political party of our time", UKIP! The Musical is tremendously funny. Of course fun is poked at UKIP, but other political parties and figures find themselves in the spotlight too (my favourite being Boris Johnson). 

This all singing, all dancing production doesn't cross the line or try to be too controversial for the sake of it. Instead it is performed with a light-hearted tone by a cast who take to the stage with wit and huge personality. The score is irresistibly catchy and each musical number is staged with charm and character. UKIP! The Musical is a huge hit!
