In conversation with Kelvin MacKenzieJuly 2012As editor of The Sun during the 1980s, Kelvin MacKenzie brought hilarity and havoc to the nation in equal measure.

The timeless struggle between wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, and hope and despair, make this a theatre experience not to be missed.
