Howard Brenton's portrait of Harold Macmillan stars Jeremy Irons as the former Prime Minister.

Set against the backdrop of fading Empire, war, the Suez crisis, vintage champagne, adultery and vicious Tory politics, Never So Good tells the story of a political idealist who rushed to fight for his country, found his career blocked by his loyalty to Winston Churchill, and was eventually brought down by the Profumo scandal.
