National Theatre Live: Hansard
Olivier Award winners Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings star in this play from Simon Woods, broadcast from the National Theatre in London.
It’s a summer’s morning in 1988, and Tory politician Robin has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana - the picture of a perfect marriage. 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.
This is a screening of a previously recorded live production. It is not a live performance.
