Ella Hickson’s short play PMQ, created with Gwendolen Chatfield, was first performed as part of Coalition at Theatre503, London, in November 2010.

The play is set in a Westminster dressing room, where Prime Minister Dave is nervously preparing for his first ever bout of Prime Minister's Questions. As he rehearses his lines, he is continually mocked and interrupted by Speaker, a young woman who sits in a large green-leather armchair suspended high above the floor, strumming a guitar.

The Theatre503 production was directed by James Dacre and performed by Gwendolen Chatfield and Richard Lintern.
