See Olivier Award-winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Crown), in Hansard, a witty and devastating new play from Simon Woods, captured ‘live’ at the National Theatre in London and screening at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, on Thursday 21 November.
It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana; the picture of a perfect marriage. 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.
