Labour of Love

Michael Grandage Company and Headlong present the world première of James Graham’s new play Labour of Love, starring Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig.

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 27 September for 10 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?

  • Stunning and captivating theatre

    Stimulating and provocative theatre at its best. Brilliant acting with superb scene shifting. Those of us old enough to remember so much were hugely entertained and those whose memories might be more recent were challenged by the history....all with a deeply human element. Both leads were brilliant!

    Great show. The two main characters brought a great script to life, in an amusing way , showing real insight into the struggle the Labour Party has had politically over the last few decades. Lots of great one liners.
