This HouseThe country faces an economic crisis and there's a hung parliament. If you are a sick MP you're still expected to make your way through the lobby to cast your vote. There are fist fights a-plenty in the Westminster bars, and the parties' whips bend the rules, but not all the time. After premiering at the National in 2012, James Graham's 1974-set drama, This House, now transfers to the Garrick Theatre. Based in the engine rooms of Westminster, the play strips back politics and takes a brutal but humorous perspective of Britain's government. "There's tremendous fun here, as Graham contrasts the ancient rituals of parliament with the grubby realities of party politics" (The Guardian).

 

About Garrick Theatre

Named after the great 18th century actor-manager David Garrick, whose portrait hangs in the foyer bar, The Garrick is a fantastic piece of late-Victorian kitsch, originally financed by WS Gilbert. The interior is decorated like a Renaissance palace, all cupids and laurels, with hardly a smooth surface visible among all the moulding, gilt and classical statues. More about Garrick Theatre
