James Graham’s critically acclaimed political drama This House transferred to the Garrick Theatre following its run at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre. It originally played two sell-out seasons at the National Theatre, directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin.

It’s 1974. And Westminster is about to go to war with itself. Set in the engine rooms of the House of Commons, This House dives deep into the secret world of the Whips who roll up thei sleeves and go to often farcical lengths to influence an unruly chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

In an era of chaos, both hilarious and shocking, fist fights break out in the parliamentary bars, high- stakes tricks and games are played, while sick or dying MPs are carried through the lobby to register their crucial votes as the government hangs by a thread.
