A sell-out hit at the National Theatre and in the West End, James Graham’s biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed play This House comes to Edinburgh.

Roll back to 1974. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain’s political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes.

In an era of chaos, both hilarious and shocking, fist fights break out in the parliamentary bars, high-stake tricks and games are played, while sick or dying MPs are carried through the lobby to register their crucial votes as the government hangs by a thread.

With a live band on stage playing music from the era (including songs by David Bowie and the Sex Pistols) and a cast of 22, including top actors like Matthew Pidgeon, who last appeared on our stage as James III in The James Plays.

Set within the House of Commons, there are a limited number of on stage seats where you can get close to the action within the Chamber and even have a drink at one of the Westminster Bars during the interval.
