Following the success of King Charles III, which was both riotously hilarious and critically praised, renowned playwright Michael Bartlett has come with The 47th at the Old Vic to make audiences laugh with his satirical wit and razor-sharp humor.
The 47th sheds light on the underbelly of the world's most powerful political spectacle, the US presidential election. Bertie Carvel, the Tony and Olivier award-winner, stars as Donald Trump attempting to win back the White House in the year 2024. Also in the cast list are Tamara Tunie as Kamala Harris and Lydia Wilson as Ivanka Trump.
Book your tickets now before the polls close (read: tickets run out) as this viciously funny show's World Premiere is running just for 2 months.
The year is 2024, it is almost time for the people of United States to elect their next president. But, who’s going to win this election and at what cost?
Donald Trump is all set to win back the White House and run for the upcoming presidential election in The 47th. Joe Biden, bleary-eyed and battle-weary, stalks the halls of power late at night like a crazed Lady Macbeth. Only Kamala Harris, who became the President of the United States after Joe Biden’s resignation, stands in Trump's path.
