Set the stage to 1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when elections are won or lost by one vote, when there are fistfights in bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their votes. Set in the political engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s biting and energetic new play This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves—and on occasion bend the rules—to maneuver a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
