Hansard (noun): the official report of all parliamentary debates. See two-time Olivier Award winners Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen) in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast and recorded live in 2019 from the National Theatre in London. It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh (Jennings) has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana (Duncan). 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 scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport. Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season. The live broadcast screens at the Bethesda Row Cinema only, on Thursday, November 7 at 2:00pm. All subsequent screenings will be a recording of that performance.
