The Last Prime Minister of Ireland A Production by Splódar Theatre

Tension and comedy come together in this historical drama centred on David Lloyd George,
where family dynamics provide much of the intrigue, and no one is who they seem.

On the morning of his wife’s funeral in January 1941 David Lloyd George is forced to confront his past political and personal behaviour. In his dealings with Ireland he stands accused of deceiving both the unionist and nationalist communities but it is the betrayal of his family and his native Wales that torture the former Prime Minister most.

Through interactions with his daughter Megan, and Philip Noel Baker, founder of the United Nations, you will question if the historic figure often credited with winning the Great War was a hero or a villain. While the inebriated and lazy Cledwyn blunders his way into solving a great mystery that has baffled all, the maternal Lallie, housekeeper and confidant attempts to bring peace to the tortured souls in the family.
