Pauline Gibson is a junior doctor who becomes the face of a campaign to save her local hospital. She’s thrust from angel of the NHS, to becoming an independent MP.

In the Houses of Parliament, she crosses paths with her university boyfriend, Jack Gould, a stalwart Labour loyalist, climbing the ranks of the party.

As media and public pressure mounts on Pauline to run for leadership of the Labour party, she faces an agonizing decision.

David Hare’s explosive new play, set in a very different 2018, portrays personal choices and their public consequences, through a twenty year intimate friendship.

David Hare (
Plenty, Skylight, Stuff Happens) was recently described by the Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English.’

Siân Brooke (
Doctor Foster, Sherlock) plays Pauline. Neil Armfield, Co-Artistic Director of Adelaide Festival, returns to direct.
