James Graham’s hit play This House transferred to the West End following sell-out runs during Festival 2016 and at the National Theatre. Graham’s other work for theatre in the UK and US, and on screen, includes The Vote, Finding Neverland, Privacy, Coalition and X+Y.
Daniel Evans recently directed David Mamet’s American Buffalo in the West End; his productions at Sheffield Theatres included Lucy Prebble’s The Effect and David Hare’s Racing Demon.
This production is a fictional imagination based on real events which took place in 2001 following an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? It is not in any way connected with the makers of the programme or any of the individuals portrayed.
