Simon Woods: Hansard ΝΤ Live



On a summer morning of 1988, Tory politician Robin Hesketh returns home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with Diana, his wife of 30 years. But all is not as peaceful as it seems. Diana has a bad hangover, a fox is destroying the garden undisturbed, and deep secrets are being dug up one after another. As the day draws on, what starts as a routine marital scrap gradually turns to blood-sport. Simon Woods’ new play (Hansard: the official report of all parliamentary debates) is a witty and devastating portrait of the governing class in the UK, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony and Cleopatra, Twelfth Night), with Olivier Award-winners Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings.
