About Labour of Love

The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including "Labour of Love") running concurrently on the West End.
