House archiveUp at the House, Teddy dreams of a bright political future as an MP. His only problem is an urgent need to clean up his private life before the Prime Minister's special envoy arrives. But how can he hope to create the right impression when nobody's talking to him and he can't understand a single word of those that are? House and Garden are two linked comedies played simultaneously in adjacent auditoria by the same cast! Alan Ayckbourn's two linked plays House and Garden are played in repertory together at the National. House is set indoors from the Garden which provides the setting for a simultaneous production in the Olivier. The same actors play characters in both the comedies, running from one stage to another. The shows can also be seen as individual pieces. Each Play 2 hrs 20mins. Evening performances continue in the foyer for approx 45mins.
