LIMEHOUSE

One Sunday morning, four prominent Labour politicians – Bill Rodgers, Shirley Williams, Roy Jenkins and David Owen – gather in private at Owen’s home in Limehouse, east London.  They are desperate to find a political alternative.  Should they split their party, divide their loyalties, and risk betraying everything they believe in? Would they be starting afresh, or destroying forever the tradition that nurtured them?

Steve Waters' thrilling new drama takes us behind closed doors to imagine the personal conflicts behind the making of political history. 

Limehouse is a fictionalised account of real events.  It is not endorsed by the individuals portrayed. 

 

Power Season Debates Series
Each of the productions in the season, in different ways, look at the fight for power, the rise to power, and the exercise of power. 

During the season, we gathered leading voices in politics, the arts, business and journalism to debate some of the key threads linking these productions, and civil society, together. Listen to them here.
