The General Election
7 May 2015: 20.30-22.00
A fictional London polling station
Set in a fictional London polling station, THE VOTE dramatises the final ninety minutes before the polls close in this year’s general election. On that exact day, May 7, at that precise time 8.30 – 10pm, the play will be broadcast live on More4 from the Donmar stage.
THE VOTE looks at what happens in Britain on election night through the eyes of those at the polling station. Every five years we assert our right as citizens to uphold or replace our government – but, characteristically, we do it in the most unremarkable and understated of ways –at local parish churches, primary schools and community centres across the country.
James Graham’s new play shines a light on the diverse, diligent and often hilarious individuals who turn these unglamorous settings into places where history is made.
