Labour of Love Synopsis

Michael Grandage Company and Headlong present the world premiere of James Graham's new play LABOUR OF LOVE, starring Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire. This razor-sharp political comedy reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on This House, and plays at the Noel Coward Theatre from the 15th September for 11 weeks only.

Labour MP David Lyons cares about modernisation and "electability"... his constituency agent, Jean Whittaker cares about principles and her community. Set away from the Westminster bubble in the party's traditional northern heartlands, this is a clash of philosophy, culture and class against the backdrop of the Labour Party over 25 years as it moves from Kinnock through Blair into Corbyn... and beyond?

MARTIN FREEMAN AND SARAH LANCASHIRE TO STAR IN LABOUR OF LOVE (8 JUNE 2017)

The Michael Grandage Company and Headlong have announced the world premiere of James Graham's new play Labour of Love, with Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire leading the company this autumn. The premiere production, directed by Headlong's artistic director Jeremy Herrin, runs at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre from 15 September to 2 December 2017.

Labour of Love sees the return of MGC to the West End following Photograph 51 and their acclaimed 2013/14 season, also at the Noel Coward Theatre, and for Headlong with the multi award-winning People Places and Things, 1984 and most recently James Graham's This House. This razor-sharp political comedy reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on Headlong's This House, which was recently revived at the Garrick Theatre, following its earlier critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre.

Michael Grandage said: "This wonderful new play by James Graham is the start of a body of work that MGC will be producing over the next two years as we continue our commitment to delivering quality theatre at affordable prices in the West End. For this first production, I am delighted Jeremy Herrin and Headlong, a company I have long admired, are joining us."

Jeremy Herrin added: "I'm delighted to be working on such a funny and politically insightful play as Labour of Love, and it's a privilege to continue my creative relationship with James Graham. It's a real testament to his writing that it has attracted two perfectly matched actors, both at the height of their powers, as Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire. I loved working with Michael at the Donmar, and I'm really looking forward to Headlong and MGC teaming up to bring the best in contemporary theatre to the West End this autumn."
