Description

Following two sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and an upcoming run at Chichester Festival Theatre, James Graham’s critically acclaimed political drama This House transfers to the Garrick Theatre this November. 

1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes in the House of Commons are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions. 

Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
