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 and directed by Jeremy Herrin, gives us a timely, moving and often amusing insight into the workings of British politics.
“A treat and a triumph, this is a superlative night out in the West End”
“This House is a remarkable achievement for all concerned”
