Pauline Gibson is a junior doctor, who becomes the face of a campaign to save her local hospital. She’s thrust from angel of the NHS to becoming an independent MP.
In the Houses of Parliament, she crosses paths with her university boyfriend, Jack Gould, a stalwart Labour loyalist, climbing the ranks of the party.
As media and public pressure mounts on Pauline to run for leadership of the Labour party, she faces an agonising decision…
Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as “The premiere political dramatist writing in English.” His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.
“David Hare’s Labour play hits political bullseyes. A terrific performance from Siân Brooke.” The Guardian
“Absorbing. A passionate, fluent production.” The Independent
This is a screening of the theatre performance, recorded live at the National Theatre, London.
