Labour of Love



Originally planned for October 2023, we have had to postpone this production for a variety of reasons that are outside of our control. We have put a lot of time into the development of this play and have some amazing cast members that really want to perform this show. We hope that once certain circumstances get resolved that we will be able to get this show on stage and we hope that you will be able to join us then for this brilliant play.


Labour of Love
by James Graham 

Labour of Love is a political comedy set in the Labour party’s traditional northern heartlands. Its particular challenge is that it explores the clash of philosophy, culture and class against the backdrop of the Labour Party over 25 years from Kinnock, through Blair to Corbyn. That sounds quite sombre but it is a really sharp comedy with parts that verge on farce.
Labour MP David Lyons cares about modernisation and electability, his constituency agent, Jean Whittaker, cares about principles and her community but, what are their real feelings for each other?
