This HouseThe country faces an economic crisis and there's a hung parliament. If you are a sick MP you're still expected to make your way through the lobby to cast your vote. There are fist fights a-plenty in the Westminster bars, and the parties' whips bend the rules, but not all the time. Following a successful run at National Theatre's Cottesloe, James Graham's 1974-set drama now transfers to the Olivier. Based in the engine rooms of Westminster, the play strips back politics and takes a brutal but humorous perspective of Britain's government. "There's tremendous fun here, as Graham contrasts the ancient rituals of parliament with the grubby realities of party politics" (The Guardian).
