HansardA new play by Simon Woods, Hansard is a witty and devastating portrait of the governing class. Set on a summer's morning in 1988, it sees Tory politician Robin Hesketh return home to what should be an idyllic Cotswold house only to find his wife of 30 years, Diana, digging up secrets. Soon the day-to-day life of a marital couple turns into a blood sport. Three-time Olivier Award-winning actor Alex Jennings stars as Robin while Lindsay Duncan takes the role of Diana.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
