- "The press are accusing you of ducking accountability on the issue, Prime Minister."
- "Well, yes - that's rather the point."
The Prime Minister's decision over the summer to lift all pandemic restrictions has led to a new, vaccine-resistant Covid-19 variant - that has placed the UK in its hardest lockdown ever. Like everyone else, the PM is staying at home... but will that stop him and his advisors from turning a National Emergency into an opportunity?
WATCH THE TRAILER!
Conceived and written during lockdown - and rehearsed and recorded entirely on Zoom - Deepfakes is a satire on contemporary British politics that plays out over a series of video conference calls between an imaginary UK Prime Minister* and his aides, ministers and family - and explores what could happen when ambition, technology and democracy collide.
*Deepfakes is a work of fiction. Any similarities to actual persons living or dead is (of course) entirely coincidental.
