Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire is regarded by many as one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century. Opening on Broadway in December 1947, the play received the Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama in 1948 and in 1951 the play was adapted for the big screen. The film, which starred Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando, won a host of awards including the Academy Award for Best Actress and cemented the play's status in American drama history.
Rehearsals are now underway for the national tour of This House, James Graham's smash-hit political comedy examining the 1974 Hung Parliament.
I was thrilled to travel to central London last Friday to get a first look at the show and to hear from the director, writer and other members of the cast and creative team.

We're extremely excited to be co-producing the intense real-life thriller Pressure, an acclaimed new play centred around the D-Day landings and the most important weather forecast in the history of warfare.
