Cheap This House tickets at the Garrick Theatre
This House will transfer to the Garrick Theatre, following its upcoming run at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre. Having originally played two sell-out seasons at the National Theatre, directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin, This House opens for previews on 19 November, with a press night on Wednesday 30 November 2016.
1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions.
Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s 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.
Rae Smith’s design neatly installs the House of Commons into the Garrick Theatre including some seating on those famous benches for the audience.

Garrick Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Garrick Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Garrick Theatre is situated on Charing Cross Road in the West End of London, close to Leicester Square tube station.
This 650 seat venue was built in 1889. The first production to be staged there was Profligate by A W Pinero, which opened on April 24 1889. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are A Pair of Spectacles, The Notorious Mrs Ebbsmith, No Sex Please, We’re British and An Inspector Calls.
In its early years the Garrick was famed for producing melodramas. Today, it enjoys consistent success and has firmly established itself as a receiving house; which is to say, it brings in actors, actresses and productions from elsewhere rather than developing productions in-house.
Like any long-serving institution, its fortunes have varied over the years. In 1934 the Garrick Theatre very nearly met its demise, when plans were made to convert the theatre into a ‘Super Cinema.’ Fortunately this plan failed to bear fruit.
The theatre closed during WWII, but sustained only limited damage during the Blitz and was able to re-open in September 1941. The auditorium was built on four levels and was able to seat nearly 2000 patrons. The Upper Gallery is no longer in use at the theatre, bringing it down to its current capacity.
The layout, size and intimate atmosphere of the Garrick Theatre make it the perfect place to see well known artists and productions in a personal environment. Recent successes include One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Bad Girls: The Musical, Derren Brown’s Mind Reader, A Little Night Music, The Little Dog Laughed, Pygmalion and Chicago.
Whatever you decide to see at the Garrick Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
