About Boris Rex

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 stylistic aesthetic somewhere between greek tragedy and dreadful clown. It follows on from Charlie Dupré's 2017 Edinburgh Fringe hit, Macblair (The Scotsman's Top 6 hot picks for political shows '17).
