Michael Grandage Company and Headlong present the world première of James Graham’s new play Labour of Love at the Noel Coward Theatre in London. Starring BAFTA and Emmy-winner Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit) and Tamsin Grieg (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown--The Musical, Episodes), this razor-sharp political comedy reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on This House.
Labour MP David Lyons cares about modernisation and “electability”… his constituency agent, Jean Whittaker cares about principles and her community. Set away from the Westminster bubble in the party’s traditional northern heartlands, this is a clash of philosophy, culture and class against the backdrop of the Labour Party over 25 years as it moves from Kinnock through Blair into Corbyn…and beyond?
