National Theatre Live: Hansard (12A) at Ely Cinema

Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), star in this witty and devastating new play from Simon Woods.

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. 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 sparring quickly turns to blood-sport.

Doors and bar 6.30pm. 

100 mins (with no interval).
