The National Theatre’s production of Hansard is set to begin performances August 22 in London ahead of a September 3 opening night. Simon Wood’s new drama, directed by Simon Goodwin, is scheduled to play through November 25 at the Lyttelton Theatre.
Described as witty and devastating, Hansard tells the story of a high-profile political couple engaged in tense a battle of their own at home. The production stars Olivier Award winners Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings.
