Time Bomb (2 stars)

This article is from 2008.

It's 2017 and Westminster wants to go nuclear on Iran, but MP Victoria Clarke and her middle English family hold a secret that could change the vote forever. There's some nice ideas about where the personal and apocalyptic meet in Tim Burton's one-act play, but with its largely amateurish performances and crass invocations of Oppenheimer's HUAC humiliations, David Kelly's death and Claire Short's cabinet resignation, this is drearily unengaging fare.
