Simon Godwin (Antony & Cleopatra) directs Simon Woods' witty and devastating portrait of the governing class.
Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings, both two-time Olivier Award winners, return to the National Theatre to play Diana and Robin.
Production supported by Marcia Grand in loving memory of Richard Grand, Leila Maw Straus and Shawn M. Donnelley & Christopher M. Kelly.
The official report of all parliamentary debates.
It's a summer's morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana.
But all is not as blissful as it seems.
Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place.
As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital sparring quickly turns to blood-sport.
A witty and devastating new play.
