What is currently on at Lyttelton (National Theatre) (V374)


Up 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!
