About this show

Direct from London's West End comes the wildly witty comedy Labour of Love about the ups and downs of left-of-center politics over the past 25 years.

David Lyons parachuted into Parliament with Tony Blair's generation of center-left politicos focused on electability and effectiveness. His local office director, Jean Whittaker, firmly believes in the pro-union, far-left policies that have historically served his constituency deep in the heart of British coal country — a district that in 2018 just might turn conservative for the first time in a century. Unfolding over decades, across multiple election nights, and through economic booms and busts, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape that will resonate for anyone asking, "whither the Democrats?" James Graham is one of the UK's most popular playwrights who recently had three separate works running concurrently on the West End.
