Calling all Anglophiles! Political turmoil extends far beyond our national borders, as proven by National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of This House.
It’s 1974, and Britain has a hung Parliament. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backstabbing as the political parties battle to change the future of the nation. This House is a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics by James Graham (Ink, ITV’s Quiz) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things). This much-loved production enjoyed two sold-out National Theatre runs, a West End transfer and national tour as well as being filmed by National Theatre Live. It was filmed live on stage at the National Theatre in 2013.

This production is available for free streaming until June 4, 7 p.m. UK time.
