'An intoxicating political thrill ride'
Following two sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and an upcoming run at Chichester Festival Theatre, James Graham's critically acclaimed political drama This House transfers to the Garrick Theatre this November.
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.

REVIEW: This House at the Garrick Theatre "The ayes have it. . ."
The political landscape of the 1970s is not too far removed from recent years. A hung parliament, leaders struggling to cling on to power, talks of devolution and a split with Europe – sound familiar?
