Synopsis

Enjoying two sold-out National Theatre runs, filmed live on stage in 2013, and a West End transfer, This House is a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics by James Graham (Ink, ITV's Quiz).

Watch on YouTube from 7pm on Thursday, 28 May.

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.

During this era of chaos, when a staggering number of politicians die and age-old traditions are thrown aside, MPs find they must roll up their sleeves, and bend the rules, to navigate a way through the Mother of all Parliaments.

Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things) directs this much-loved production, available to watch on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel from Thursday 28 May.
