This House, by James Graham
a National Theatre at Home production

A moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics in the chaotic world of the hung Parliament of 1974.

The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backstabbing as the political parties battle to change the future of the nation.  A staggering number of politicians die and age-old traditions are thrown aside as MPs find they must roll up their sleeves, and bend the rules, to navigate a way through the Mother of all Parliaments.

Available to watch on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel from Thursday 28 May.

★★★★★
A quirky approach to an extraordinary period of political history.
