Simulcast of 'Hansard' comes to Latchis

Posted

BRATTLEBORO — The Latchis Theatre dives into the wit and drama of British politics this week with a presentation of the National Theatre's "Hansard" at 4 p.m., on Sunday.

Olivier Award winners Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), appear in this brand new play from Simon Woods that's been hailed as "Engrossing and incisive" and "deliciously witty."

It's 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 (Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night).

"Hansard" runs 1 hour and 25 minutes, with no intermission.

Tickets for "Hansard" are $20 for general admission, $10 for students.
