Featuring a wildly entertaining cast of infamous characters from the height of blind New Labour hysteria, Harry Hill and Steve Brown’s political rock opera TONY! Brings an uproarious reexamination of ‘Britain’s first pop prime minister’ to The Lowry from Mon 2 – Sat 7 Oct.

Billed as ‘Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show!’, TONY! charts the story of how the unassuming hippy and budding musician became a dollar-soaked warhawk in his ascent to the top of the political food chain, leading Britain into the new millennium with idiosyncratic insincerity and a delirious cult of personality.

Buoyed by appearances from larger-than-life figures including Cherie Blair, John Prescott, Princess Diana, Osama Bin Laden and George W. Bush, TONY! promises a hilarious night of political intrigue, power, romance, religion and corruption in an unflinching, entertaining and ‘colossally tasteless’ (The New European) satire which reevaluates the enigmatic figurehead in a whirlwind of triumphant chaos.
