The Duck House at the Vaudeville Theatre

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Ben Miller and Nancy Carroll star in outrageous new comedy The Duck House at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Tony and Olivier Award winner Terry Johnson directs the hilarious political satire The Duck House, written by acclaimed TV writers Dan Patterson and Colin Swash.

An all-star cast includes Ben Miller as Robert Houston, MP, Olivier Award winner Nancy Carroll as Felicity Houston, Debbie Chazen as Ludmilla, James Musgrave as Seb Houston, Simon Shepherd as Sir Norman Cavendish, MP and Diana Vickers as Holly.

This wickedly funny new comedy is set in May 2009 as Gordon Brown’s government goes into meltdown and ambitious MP Robert Houston (Ben Miller) decides to jump ship from Labour to Tory. But suddenly the Expenses Scandal breaks and a world of dodgy receipts results in Houston and his family in Parliamentary and personal panic.

The Duck House is directed by award-winning writer and director Terry Johnson, designed by Lez Brotherston, with lighting by Mark Henderson and sound by John Leonard.

  1. Had the great joy of seeing this at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham which
    was moer than worth the effort of travelling up from Penzance. Absoltely
    fekkin’ B.R.I.L.L.I.A.N.T!! Such a wonderfully written political farce with
    an even more fantastic spot on cast headed by the legendary Ben Miller
    himself! An absolute must see!! Going up to London again in March for a
    second dose!

  2. Saw this in the Cambridge Arts Theatre last evening. Top draw farce,
    excellent acting, timing fantastic. Far too close to the truth!!.
    Hope it has a good, long run in this theatre. Break a leg.
