THE VOTE By James Graham Will Be Presented at Bush House Auditorium
The Vote 2019 looks at what happens in Britain on election night through the eyes of those at the polling station. Once every 5 years- although, in recent times, increasingly more! - we assert our rights as citizens to uphold or replace our government. As we engage with democracy, we do it in the most unremarkable and understated ways- in local parish churches, primary schools and community centres across the country. James Graham set out to illuminate "the diverse, diligent and often hilarious individuals" who turn the "unglamorous" settings of polling stations into "places where history is made." Labelled "a glorious night at the polling station" (Observer) and "brilliant apt" (Telegraph),the original Donmar production was broadcast live on More4 in 2015 and nominated for a BAFTA
Putting this show together back in 2015 was the most fun I've had in a theatre. I love the idea of updating James' affectionate and wise comedy for the 2019 election. It's glorious to bring so many of these actors back together, and I hope it's a reunion that becomes a tradition."- Josie Rourke
On this historic evening, set in real time in the final 90 minutes of polling, we invite you to join us for this special one off event and share this extraordinary evening together.
