Up And Coming - March 2010
Cast List (in order of appearance)
Philip Conway (Pip), Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the House, is attending a party conference. He has been tipped to be the new party leader, but his campaign is in serious danger of collapse. Visits from rivals, fellow conspirators and the all-too attentive Vicky coincide rather unfortunately, keeping Pip on his toes. The world's press is in the lobby, there are threats of assassination, students are rioting outside the hotel, women are in and out of the bedroom and his wife is about to turn up. All of the above land Pip in a series on uncomfortable situations. Up and Coming exposes the underhand dealings that go on in political circles and keep one guessing tantalizingly unanswered until the end; who will get what they deserve?
