Is a political revolution coming? Will the Labour party collapse? Can the kingdom stay united? It’s 1974. And Westminster is about to go to war with itself. Set in the engine rooms of the House of Commons, James Graham’s This House dives deep into the secret world of the Whips who roll up their sleeves and go to often farcical lengths to influence an unruly chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
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 hangs by a thread.
Premiered to universal acclaim at the National Theatre in 2012, This House written by James Graham (The Vote, Privacy) and directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things, Wolf Hall), gives us a timely, moving and often amusing insight into the workings of British politics.
The cast includes Phil Daniels (Kevin Wicks in EastEnders), Kevin Doyle (DS John Wadsworth in Happy Valley and Joseph Molesley in Downton Abbey), Nathaniel Parker (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries), Steffan Rhodri (Dave Coaches in Gavin and Stacey) and Malcolm Sinclair (Silk, Midsomer Murders, Foyle’s War, Hustle).
