The Duck HouseBen Miller (Death in Paradise, The Armstrong and Miller Show, and the original cast of The Ladykillers in the West End) stars as Labour backbencher Robert Houston in this political comedy written by Mock The Week's Dan Patterson and Private Eye's Colin Swash. Exploring the murky world of the MPs' expenses scandal, The Duck House is a hilarious politicial satire which invites audiences to wade into the cesspit of moral rot at the heart of Parliament - a place where it's OK to claim a duck house on expenses. Miller leads a starry cast which includes Olivier award-winning National Theatre actress Nancy Carroll and former X Factor contestant Diana Vickers.
