In rehearsal: Labour Of Love

Published 20 September 2017

Look inside the rehearsal room of Labour Of Love, starring Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig, soon to open at the Noël Coward Theatre.

Tamsin Greig recently stepped into the role, after Sarah Lancashire had to withdraw.

This razor-sharp political comedy reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on Headlong’s This House, which was recently revived at the Garrick Theatre, following its earlier critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre.

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?

Labour of Love sees the return of Michael Grandage Company to the West End following Photograph 51 and their acclaimed 2013/14 season, also at the Noel Coward Theatre, and for Headlong with the multi award-winning People Places and Things, 1984 and most recently James Graham’s This House.

Labour Of Love opens on 3 October, with previews from 27 September, and runs until 2 December.
