Description for The Unthinkable Paperback. The Unthinkable is a play about 'not noticing'; not noticing that one's ideals have become warped; not noticing that being active in party politics is different from being engaged in political activity; not noticing that amassing a personal fortune and professing socialism might be a contradiction in terms; and not noticing that. Num Pages: 96 pages. BIC Classification: DD. Category: (G) General (US: Trade). Dimension: 196 x 131 x 8. Weight in Grams: 158.
A hard-hitting play about the collapse of idealism in contemporary politics. The founder members of a radical think-tank meet to toast their success – fifteen years of second-guessing the next big idea; fifteen years of shaping politics on the left; fifteen years of thinking the unthinkable. But there's a spectre at the feast, and a scandal is about to break that will ruin more than just the party. Steve Waters' play The Unthinkable was first staged at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield, in 2004.
