A Day on the Racists is a gorgeous new piece of political theatre from award-winning playwright Anders Lustgarten: a devastatingly well timed exam of the increase of the BNP in London, released to coincide with the area most well known on the Finborough Theatre, March 2010.

Set within the related constituency that BNP chief Nick Griffin is to face for within the approaching normal Election, A Day on the Racists is a uniquely courageous and perceptive piece of political theatre. It either makes an attempt to appreciate why humans can be attracted to the BNP and diagnoses the deeper reason for that charm: the political abandonment and betrayal of the operating classification by means of New Labour.

The plot is as follows: Pete Case was whatever - a number one Labour occasion organiser within the neighborhood automobile factories. Now he struggles to get through as a decorator as immigrant employees undercut his top mate's enterprise, his son Mark cannot get a role or onto the housing checklist and no-one, from his Labour MP to his granddaughter's instructor, turns out to care. Then Pete reveals unforeseen wish: Gina is younger, combined race and status for Parliament on a platform of aiding the area people. She is status for the British nationwide celebration. As Pete's rage and melancholy progressively conquer his longstanding loathing of the BNP, he's drawn into the realm of Gina's crusade and unearths himself entangled in a nightmare of political machinations that pit his closest relationships - son, top mate, lover - opposed to his longest-held ideals and newfound aims.
