More Information on This House
Take a seat on the frontbench and heckle your way through history.
Fist fights break out in the parliamentary bars and high-stake tricks and games are played, as the government hangs by a thread in the hilarious This House.
Following a sell-out run at the National Theatre, the Playhouse is transformed into the House of Commons in James Graham’s witty and explosive play. This House explores a turbulent moment from political history through a present day lens.
A trip through the past, or a glimpse into the future, has anything really changed?

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
