SEE two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in a brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London. And showing at the McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater.

The show, Hansard, is named after a word that means the official report of all parliamentary debates.

It is 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 scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.

Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.

This performance is a screening broadcast from a live performance recorded by the National Theatre, and will be shown at the McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater on January 16 2020 at 7pm.
