The date is 8 November 2016. Five friends gather in a room in Oxford to watch the results of the 2016 US Presidential Election.
Kit is angry about injustice. Rori is idealistic and horrified. Shaun has a sharp sense of humour and is tired of being silenced. Arthur doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about. And Sam, who has more of a stake in the outcome than any of them, just wants to watch. Friendships slowly unravel over the course of the night, as loyalties are strained and theoretical beliefs begin to affect real life. 

Paper Crane and Thyme Productions are proud to present Election, an original play by Kimberley Chiu. This play is an honest, intimate, and immersive look at the relationships that underpin the university experience. 

Duration: 1 hour with no interval
