ABSTRACT
AFTER a tempestuous party-conference season, here is a West End play about... party politics. Can clever young playwright James Graham startle us with some apercus? Or has wright s everyth everything already been said? abo Nottingh Dav Bla whic Martin Freeman plays David, a Labour MP about to lose his working-class Nottinghamshire seat on election night 2017. David was a Cabinet minister under Tony Blair or Gordon Brown (we are not told which) and has always argued that Centrism is how to win votes. But now Labour has become the party of university towns and 'ooh la-di-dah Battersea' while old mining towns are turning Tory. Tamsin Greig is a late addition to the cast, though you would not know it from her assured performance.
