Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the show is a political comedy about the Labour Party, set in the northern heartlands where the clash and divide between party philosophy, class and culture couldn’t be more extreme.

Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock, Fargo) will play Labour MP David Lyons with Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax, Coronation Street) playing his constituency agent Jean Whittaker.

Graham’s work includes the forthcoming Almeida production of Ink starring Bertie Carvel and Richard Coyle, the award winning production of This House and The Vote.

The show is produced by The Michael Grandage Company and Headlong.

Labour of Love will from 15 September 2017 until 2 December 2017 at the Noel Coward Theatre.
