The adventures and misadventures of a group of graduates working in a North London call centre: Alice wants to be a singer, Liam wants to travel, Rob wants to make a killing and Sally’s been there too long but it’s okay, it’s not forever, is it? Is it?

New Labour is a comedy drama about being young, working in a shit job, living in debt, and all the funny and sad things you do to cope. It’s about the modern workforce – the children of New Labour; their hopes, their realities.

First performed by students of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, London, in 2014, directed by Richard Wilson, it provides rich opportunities for drama schools and youth theatre groups to perform.
