James Graham and Jeremy Herrin's new play Labour of Love announced

May 19, 2017

James Graham and Jeremy Herrin are to reunite on a new political comedy, Labour of Love, which is to receive its world premiere at the Noel Coward Theatre in September. 

Michael Grandage Company and Headlong are producing the new collaboration starring Martin Freeman as a Labour MP and Sarah Lancashire as a constituency agent with divergent world views. 

James Graham writes for theatre, film and television – he’s currently exploring Brexit for Channel 4, adapting 1984 as a film with Paul Greengrass and opening Ink at the Almeida. 

Jeremy Herrin is the Artistic Director of Headlong. He is currently directing Common at the National Theatre and his hugely successful production of People Places & Things is transferring to St Ann's Warehouse in New York in October this year.

Their previous collaboration on the Oliver Award nominated This House was recently revived at the Garrick Theatre, following its earlier critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre.

Labour of Love runs at the Noel Coward Theatre from 25th September to 2nd December, with previews from 15th September. Tickets are available here ››
