In 2009, David Cameron forgot how many houses he owned. Within five years, homelessness doubled. Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys a wealth of parties with Andrew Lloyd Webber and marries Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness. A riotous new musical comedy epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal. Stars of BBC Radio 4's Now Show. 'Wickedly amusing' **** (Times). 'Spirited comedy... broad, daft and punchy' **** (Guardian). 'Superbly crafted' **** (Metro).
