This House

Following sell-out runs at the National Theatre and in the West End, this extraordinary prescient play takes on a new importance in the current political climate. Are we in the midst of a political revolution? Can the country stay united?

Roll back to 1974. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain’s political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread.

In an era of chaos, both hilarious and shocking, fist fights break out in the parliamentary bars, high-stake tricks and games are played, while sick or dying MPs are carried through the lobby to register their crucial votes as the government is close to falling apart.

James Graham’s biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes, who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to maneuver a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

Directed by Jeremy Herin (People, Places and Things, Wolf Hall), This House gives us a timely, moving and often amusing insight into the workings of British politics.
