Dirty
Hands is an existential, political and comedic drama play that tells the story
in flashback of the assassination of Turnbull, a rising star on the right of
the Post-Brexit Labour Party. Hugo, fresh from prison, visits his former boss,
Monica, and in an attempt to prevent Hugo from being ‘eliminated’ by party
members angered by his indiscretions, she must decide whether he is redeemable
for the cause before midnight. As the play progresses, we see Hugo’s internal
struggles and self-doubt emerge; if he abandons his task he will be killed, but
if he murders Turnbull will he lose his integrity?
