Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class starring Olivier Award-winners, Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings, directed by Simon Woods.
A two-handed play performed by theatre legends Alex Jennings and Lindsay Duncan, full of witty banter and stinging one liners. Set against the political landscape of 1980’s Thatcher Britain, what starts out as personal digs between a married couple after work on a Friday night crashes into political judgements that brings secrets from the past spilling out of the closet.
It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana; the picture of a perfect marriage. 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.
