Synopsis Edit

Seagoon leads the workers' revolution, with the aid of some special anti-gravity sticks courtesy of Grytpype-Thynne and Moriarty.

Background Edit

This show dates from the heyday of Communism in Europe, when there were serious calls for a Communist revolution in the UK. The Prime Minister "Sir Laurence" is not based on any real prime minister, but rather is done as an impression of Laurence Olivier.
