Published in volume Mrs Delgado

A powerful story of fire and destruction, self-deceit and the corrosion of trust.

When a man who's at the heart of government makes a decision to contravene the rules for the sake of his family, what's left of his integrity, his authority, and his self-respect?

Phoenix is a monologue play by Mike Bartlett, first performed in 2020 by Bertie Carvel as an audio drama, part of English Touring Theatre and Headlong's Signal Fires storytelling project.

It is published in the volume Mrs Delgado.
