About this show

Conflict is a love story set against the backdrop of a hotly contested election, combining playwright Miles Malleson's two passions: sex and politics. The result is a provocative romance that sizzles with wit and ideas. It's the Roaring '20s, London. Lady Dare Bellingdon has everything she could want, yet she craves something more. Dare's man, Sir Major Ronald Clive, is standing for Parliament with the backing of Dare's father. Clive is a Conservative, of course, but he's liberal enough to be sleeping with Dare, who's daring enough to take Clive as a lover but too restless to marry him. Clive's opponent, Tom Smith, is passionate about social justice and understands the joy of having something to believe in. Dare is "the woman between" two candidates who both want to make a better world — until politics become personal, and mudslinging threatens to soil them all.
