Written in 1983, in which two alumni of private (‘public’) schools meet after 20 years, BRONZE visiting WOOFER at home. The latter attempts to persuade BRONZE to return to politics, at which he was a wizard. It is a comedy of bad manners between two Tory-like snobs, in which they re-enact prurient school rituals and fantasize about right-wing triumphalism.

Note from the author: "The interrogation scene in this play (which is a tribute to a similar scene in Pinter’s The Birthday Party) needs an update to make it contemporary, while maintaining its absurdity."
