A new play by James Graham
Directed by Jeremy Herrin
"Astute, funny and hugely enjoyable."
—Financial Times

This screening was recorded from an earlier live performance.

It’s 1974 and the corridors of Westminster are alive with infighting and backbiting as Britain’s politicians battle to change the nation. In this house, the ruling party holds on by a thread, fistfights erupt, and votes are won and lost by a sliver. James Graham’s critically acclaimed new play is a revelation, going behind the scenes of British politics for a candid look at those who roll up their sleeves and, on occasion, bend the rules to maneuver within the mother of all Parliaments.
