“The National Theatre aren’t giving too much away about the plot of this new play so we’re excited to see how it unravels. Set in the country house of a Tory MP in the late 80s, secrets begin to come out of the woodwork…”
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.
