Enjoying two sold-out National Theatre runs, filmed live on stage in 2013, and a West End transfer, This House is a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics by James Graham (Ink, ITV's Quiz).
“A moving political epic. Another hit is born.” - The Times
It’s 1974, and Britain has a hung Parliament. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backstabbing as the political parties battle to change the future of the nation.
“Funny, touching and cliff-hangingly suspenseful.” - Daily Telegraph
During this era of chaos, when a staggering number of politicians die and age-old traditions are thrown aside, MPs find they must roll up their sleeves and bend the rules to navigate a way through the Mother of all Parliaments.
Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things) directs this much-loved production.
Running Time: 2 hours 40 minutes with a very short interval
“A quirky approach to an extraordinary period of political history.” - Daily Express
