Labour Of Love

Labour Of Love

4.4 (8) · ComedyNew Writing

Michael Grandage Company and Headlong present the world première of James Graham's new play LABOUR OF LOVE, starring Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire.

Overview

This razor-sharp political comedy reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on This House, and plays at the Noël Coward Theatre from the 15th September for 11 weeks only.

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?

Critic reviews

James Graham pulls it off again with his latest play......It’s rare that five minutes go past without a proper roar of laughter

· Independant

Terrific performances from Freeman and Greig.

· Time Out

A brilliant new play.......starring Martin Freeman as a Blairite MP and Tamsin Greig as his old-school constituency agent, cleverly illuminates party divisions

· Guardian

SMART AND PUNCHY. MARTIN FREEMAN AND TAMSIN GREIG MAKE A SUPERB DOUBLE ACT.

· Metro

ONE OF THE MOST ENTERTAINING EVENINGS AVAILABLE IN THE WEST END.
