National Theatre Live - 'This House' at Broadway

This House Rating: 12A

Live via satellite

  • Duration: 180mins

It’s 1974 and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain’s political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread. Votes are won and lost by one, fist fights erupt in the bars, and ill MPs are hauled in to cast their votes. It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and age-old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power. James Graham’s biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to manoeuvre a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

The next play in the National Theatre Live series. For anyone who hasn't experienced this yet, plays are screened at Broadway Cinema live from the National Theatre in London. It's a great experience and at a fraction of the cost!

Meet in the bar on the ground floor of Broadway at 6.15. These shows always sell out so we will probably start queuing early, possibly at around 6.30.

    It was a really great play, I'd recommend it. I didn't find anybody else, but it didn't matter as I was so absorbed by the play, I'd have probably ignored you anyway!

    I'm attending with my parents!! We'll be there at 6.15 and will do our best to get a table in the Cafe Bar. If it's too busy we'll wait in the foyer. People usually start to queue early for these events so look for us in the queue on the stairs if you can't spot us elsewhere. See you all on Thursday!
