A Walk On Part – The Debate

As featured in episode 112, there’s a new play on at the Soho Theatre based on the diaries of former Labour MP Chris Mullin. To mark this the Soho Theatre also hosted a debate on politics and the arts, chaired by Channel 4 News political correspondent Michael Crick and featuring Labour MP Diane Abbott, LibDem MP Don Foster, artistic director Steve Marmion and John Hodgkinson, who played Chris Mullin in the play.
