The acclaimed National Theatre production of This House, starring Julian Wadham, Phil Daniels and Reece Dinsale, will transfer to the Aldwych Theatre in September, according to U.K.’s Daily Mail. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the cast is reported to be reprising their roles in the West End transfer of James Graham’s political drama. No official casting has been announced.
Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
This House originally premiered at the Cottesloe Theatre in October 2012, earning Olivier nominations for Best New Play and Best Director. The production transferred to the Olivier Theatre in February 2013.
Wadham’s theater credits include Much Ado About Nothing, The Winter’s Tale and The Prince of Homburg. His film and TV credits include Downton Abbey, The English Patient and War Horse. Daniels has appeared in Dealer’s Choice, Carousel and True West in London. His film and TV credits include EastEnders, Waking the Dead and Quadrophenia. Dinsale’s theater credits include Lady From the Sea, Racing Demon and Old Year’s Eve. He has appeared in TV’s The Crossing, Moving On and The Chase, and on film in Hamlet and The Knife That Killed Me.
