Directed by Artistic Director Simon Godwin, Hansard is a two-handed play performed by theatre legends Alex Jennings and Lindsay Duncan, full of witty banter and stinging one liners. Set against the political landscape of 1980s Thatcher Britain, what starts out as personal digs between a married couple after work on a Friday night crashes into political judgements that brings secrets from the past spilling out of the closet.
