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 scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.
Don't miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing
class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra,
Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live's 10th
