Sex, sleaze, scandal and censorship: this is a political play that pulls no punches. The plot centres around the independent politician Henry Trebell, his affair with a married woman and the resulting fall from grace that occurs unobstructed by the establishment. A damning exposé of the cut-throat, malevolent world of the '20s politcal elite in England, it's no wonder the powers that be banned it from being shown when it was first released. See for yourself what got them so worked up. Standing proudly on the South Bank, the National Theatre is a jewel in London's theatrical crown. Ruthlessly dedicated to delivering the best theatre to the masses, they stage a diverse programme of up to 30 productions each year. With Greek tragedies, Shakespearean adaptations, modern masterpieces and everything in-between, they really do have something for everyone. Long live the National. ★★★★☆ – The Guardian ★★★★☆ – The Times ★★★★☆ – Independent ★★★★☆ – Daily Express ★★★★☆ – Sunday Times ★★★★☆ – Daily Mail ★★★★☆ – Mail On Sunday Running time: 2 hours 50 minutes with an interval.
