UKIP! The Musical is a rollicking satirical swipe at one of the most radical political parties of our time. Written by Cath Day and directed by Jessica Williams, the show took the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm, winning Darren and the cast multiple four star reviews such as this one in The Stage, a specially great review for Darren in The Bristol Post and this glowing one in the Fringe Review.

The high profile of UKIP at the last UK General Election, meant that the show received a lot of attention at the festival, selling out in its run and winning the The Stage Award for Acting Excellence (held by Darren in the middle picture, above.) The coverage of the show went international with television reports not only in England and Scotland but the story also being picked up in Germany and Los Angeles.
