John O’Farrell – Family Politics

Friday 17 May, 8:00pm-9:00pm
Fowey Parish Church
16.00

All across Britain, a generation of grown-up children are graduating from university, moving back into their old bedrooms and showing their gratitude by berating their parents for their out-of-date politics. But for proud and high-profile left-wingers Emma and Eddie Hughes, the return of their only child is a far greater challenge than they ever could have anticipated. Son Dylan had warned them there was something personal he needed to tell them, but nothing could have prepared his right-on parents for the shocking revelation he delivers. Their son is a Conservative. Full of warm-hearted wit and razor-sharp political satire, Family Politics is an insightful antidote to our divided times.

John O’Farrell’s first book, Things Can Only Get Better, about his years spent helping the Labour Party lose elections at every level, was a number-one best-seller. Two decades later, he published the sequel, Things Can Only Get Worse. In between his two comic memoirs, he published five novels, including The Best A Man Can Get, May Contain Nuts and The Man Who Forgot His Wife; two funny history books (An Utterly Impartial History of Britain and its sequel) plus three collections of his satirical columns from The Guardian.

His books have been translated into over thirty languages and adapted for TV and radio. Formerly a comedy scriptwriter for shows such as Spitting Image and Have I Got News For You, he more recently co-wrote the movie Chicken Run 2, the Broadway musicals Something Rotten! and Mrs Doubtfire and the forthcoming Just For One Day – The Story of Live Aid, which opens at the Old Vic in early 2024.
