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?

  • A great show!

    27 November 2017

    A great performance, the actors were absolutely amazing and the show as a whole was fantastic! I didn't get a few jokes because they were very politics-specific (I'm not British) but I still loved and enjoyed this show very much.

  • Clever but flawed

    26 November 2017

    Am a huge fan of this playwright , This House and Ink are absolute triumphs and I would happily see the, again. Labour of Love was a tad disappointing by comparison, indeed laboured in parts , romantic ending somewhat trite and MPs wife was too cartoonish. Overall a slightly soppy apology for the Labour Party.

    Martin and Tasmin were engaging from Jean's first line to Martin's last. Run to get tickets
