It's the summer of 1988. Tory politician Robin Hesketh returns to his idyllic home in the Cotswolds. It’s his birthday and, having successfully passed Section 28; effectively banning the 'promotion' of homosexuality in schools, he is in a celebratory mood. However, his welcome is not as he'd hoped.

Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts with the familiar rhythms of marital sparring quickly turns to blood-sport.

Historyonics Theatre Company presents Hansard, a witty and savage portrait of the governing class and the society at the time. Funny, tender, and ultimately brutal.

This amateur production of “Hansard” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

This production is suitable for ages 12 and over.
