TROUPE THEATRE COMPANY presents
in association with Daphne Kuhn, Theatre on the Square

HANSARD
by Simon Woods

with FIONA RAMSAY & GRAHAM HOPKINS
directed by ROBERT WHITEHEAD

10th – 27th August

An intriguing, witty and moving new international play which premiered at London’s National Theatre shortly before the start of the global pandemic, will be presented for the first time in South Africa. It will star leading award - winning theatre veterans, FIONA RAMSAY and GRAHAM HOPKINS and be directed by ROBERT WHITEHEAD

It’s a summer morning and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife, Diana. Although the drama is set in 1988, it is written with today in mind. Robin is strongly right-wing and contemptuous of identity politics, while Diana’s liberal attitudes are excitingly critical of Tory rule and entitlement. Their personal relationship is also not as blissful as it seems and family secrets spark, in this compelling domestic drama.

Not to be missed by lovers of brilliant, thought provoking and legitimate theatre.
