A comedy of betrayal. Following his award winning show Bravo Figaro, Mark Thomas tells his true story of how Britain biggest arms manufacturer (BAE Systems) came to spy on a comedian. A tale of hubris, planes, demos and undercover deceit told by an award winning performer.
Ten years ago an activist and close friend of Mark's was exposed as a spy for BAE Systems infiltrating the movement. Now Mark wants to find him and has some questions to ask. This is a true story. The show picks up from where the award winning‘Bravo Figaro’ left off in style using interviews from friends, colleagues, activists and journalists to examine the impact of betrayal.
It is a personal and timely tale that tries to unearth what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state.
As usual plenty of laughs, some weird characters, documentary styles, probably a tear or two and the vague possibility that Mark might get beaten up in the making of it as he tries to find out if he wants revenge or if he can forgive a friend.
