Voted ‘Play of the Decade’ in 2019, James Graham’s searingly funny yet deeply moving political epic is a relishing look at the grubby realities hidden away within the political institution, set in the period between the 1974 general election and the 1979 vote of no confidence in the Callaghan government. Following the real-life dealings of party whips across the political divide of an infamous hung parliament, ‘This House’ combines comedy with comment in this portrayal of the strain between the thinking individual, the pressure to toe the party line and the end goal of winning government.
