‘Funny, touching and cliff-hangingly suspenseful.’

Enjoying two sell-out runs at the National Theatre in London, and filmed live on stage in 2013, This House is a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics written by James Graham (Ink, ITV’s Quiz).

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.

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.
