The Constituent image

‘I am not your punch bag! I am a Member of Parliament!’
An MP with an instinct for compassion.
An ex-serviceman with a life in free fall.
And a parliamentary protection officer who’s having none of it. 
This volatile new play stars BAFTA Award winner Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland, Line of Duty) as a hard-working opposition backbencher whose ideals of public office are tested by the demands of a man in crisis, played by Tony, BAFTA and Emmy Award winner James Corden (One Man, Two Guvnors, The History Boys).  
Directed by Olivier and Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus (A Christmas Carol, Matilda The Musical) and written by Olivier Award winner Joe Penhall (Blue/Orange, Mood Music), The Constituent  deconstructs politics, panic alarms and the conflict between public service and personal safety.
