Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished


National Theatre's broadcasts are a wonderful thing. This immensely clever political drama has sold out its London season, but here in Melbourne you can still get tickets to see a big-screen broadcast direct from London's Olivier Theatre.

It’s 1974 and in the hallowed corridors of Westminster Britain’s political parties fight to change the future of the nation. A hung parliament, the ruling party holding on by a thread, and ill MPs are dragged in to cast deciding votes.

James Graham’s ferocious new play strips back politics to the practical exigencies of backroom deals and double-cross maneuvers.

Cast includes Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia), Reece Dinsdale (Life on Mars), Charles Edwards (Downton Abbey), Vincent Franklin (The Thick of It), Lauren O’Neil (NT Live: Travelling Light) and Julian Wadham (The English Patient). Directed by Jeremy Herrin (The Heretic at Royal Court Theatre).
