ELLSWORTH - James Graham's biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new political play 'This House' will be broadcast live from London to The Grand screen on Thursday, May 16 for one performance at 2 p.m. NT LIVE is The Grand's series of high-definition simulcast performances from The National Theatre of London.

It's 1974, and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain's political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread. Votes are won and lost by one, fist fights erupt in the bars, and ill MPs are hauled in to cast their votes. It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and age-old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power. Graham's new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to maneuver a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
