About the Event

A Farewell to Calm, the infectiously entertaining political satire from the author of Decline and Fall and I Maybot.

Throughout another year of bluster and bedlam in Westminster, John Crace makes a welcome return to TAL with his brilliantly acerbic political sketches, which once again help to provide the nation with a much-needed injection of humour.

Led by Boris’ pound shop Churchill tribute act and featuring a cast of everyone’s least favourite pantomime villains, from Classic Dom Cummings, to Door Matt Hancock, the end result is a brilliantly entertaining chronicle of another year on these benighted islands.

John Crace is the Guardian’s parliamentary sketch writer and author of Digested Reads.
