LONDON: Friends shunned, lovers torn apart and emotions exploding: A new play running in London this month tackles the very personal divisions in British society caused by Brexit. "People Like Us," a tragicomedy penned by columnist Julie Burchill and novelist Jane Robins, asks whether or not it is possible to stay friends with people who hold opposing views.Robins, 60, said she was invited to several Christmas parties in 2016, six months after the Brexit vote and avoided the lot."People Like Us" centers on five friends in a book group and takes place around the 2016 Brexit referendum.Now the writers hope to transfer to a bigger London theater and take the play to the Brexit heartlands.
