This House set to move to the Olivier Theatre next year
Date Posted: 11/10/12
Political comedy This House is to move to the Olivier Theatre from next year following its sell-out run in the National Theatre’s Cottesloe space.
It means those looking to catch the show may wish to book London hotels closer to the Olivier when visiting the capital, so they can take in James Graham's 1970s House of Commons-set play.
This House, which bears similarities to modern comedy The Thick of It, showcases the funnier side of politics with fist fights in bars and sick MPs carried through lobbies to register their vote.
The way in which it strips down the political realities of Westminster has earned the production rave reviews.
Michael Billington, from The Guardian, said it recaptured the mayhem of Westminster politics "with abundant theatricality, accompanying music and choreographed movement".
Similarly glowing was the Evening Standard's review, which awarded it four stars and said it was "visually enjoyable" and "packed with clever lines".
