Ellie Zeegen (PM) and Ali Watt (John) in Letter of Last Resort at top secret location.


Set in the near future, David Greig’s brilliant play is a conversation between the new prime minister (in this case a woman) and the Head of Arrangements, John, at the end of her first day.  It unpacks the arguments around nuclear deterrents – and the surreal position a new prime minster must find themself in.
