This House West End Transfer

This House

Gavin Kalin Productions are proud to announce  James Graham’s critically acclaimed political drama This House will transfer to the Garrick Theatre, following its upcoming run at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre.

★★★★★ ‘Ferociously witty and permeated by a deep sense of the tragi-comic nature of all political systems.’ Daily Telegraph

★★★★★ ‘A landslide success.’ Evening Standard

1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions.

Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
