James Graham’s This House Will Transfer to West End

first_img View Comments Charles Edwards in ‘This House'(Photo: Johan Persson) James Graham’s political drama This House will transfer to the Garrick Theatre, following its upcoming run at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre. The show previously played to much acclaim at the U.K.’s National Theatre, and will once again be directed by Jeremy Herrin. This House is scheduled to begin previews on November 19 and officially open on November 30.1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions. Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.The production will feature design by Rae Smith, with lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Ian Dickinson and choreography by Scott Ambler.Graham wrote the book to Finding Neverland, which is currently running at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.last_img read more

Clippers intend to carry this season’s winning culture forward

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum They accomplished all that despite featuring no All-Stars on a team that was overhauled halfway through the season, when they traded away six players, including then-leading scorer Tobias Harris, at the trade deadline — and then got better. They did that while starting two rookies in the backcourt, and with their top scorer coming off the bench.They did it, they said, by buying into a gritty, egalitarian approach.“It started from Day One,” said Lou Williams, who averaged 21.7 points and 7.7 assists off the bench in the postseason. “We didn’t have any ego problems. Every argument that we had was a basketball-related problem. And I’m thankful, this was a smooth year to play with these guys.”What’s next? Entering free agency, the Clippers are one of the NBA’s best positioned teams with the ability to pursue two maximum-salaried free agents. Reportedly, they’re focused on the Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard and Golden State’s Kevin Durant, who is expected to opt out of the final year of his current deal.“Previous Clippers offseasons we didn’t have any money, so those are the begging ones,” Rivers said. “Those are where you have minimum contracts and try to see who you can strike lightning in a bottle. We don’t have to do that. But we’re going to make the right choice, too. We’re not just going to spend money. Obviously there’s a lot of guys out there. If we get the ones we want we’ll use it. If not, we’ll just keep building away.” PLAYA VISTA — Still processing the season that just was, a handful of Clippers spoke Saturday from a raw, in-between space some 13 hours after their series-ending loss to the Golden State Warriors.Both proud of what they’d accomplished and disappointed it was over, they relished their part on a team so special it had opposing coaches expressing admiration and fans on their feet after Friday’s 129-110 loss. The Clippers also thought aloud a bit about the future, saying they expect to carry the same cultural tenets into next season — whatever the 2019-20 team looks like.“We know that we’re not going to have the exact team that we had last year, but we also know that we can change our team and still have the right culture,” Coach Doc Rivers said.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 center_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The Clippers moved on this season from their not-so-distant star-driven Lob City identity thanks to an inspired performance by a team lacking traditional star power. This group delighted in outdoing modest external expectations by winning 48 games, reaching the postseason in the cutthroat Western Conference and then pushing the two-time defending NBA champions to six games in the opening round. If the Clippers prove a desirable destination for some of the game’s most elite talents it’ll be because of how they’ve operated recently.“What’s been impressive is that they won while they were re-building,” Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said Friday. “It’s great for the league to see a team do what the Clippers are doing. Rather than trying to stink, they’re trying to be good.“When I see the Clippers,” he added, “I see a team building a foundation, something substantial, something real.”Patrick Beverley’s realness became increasingly appreciated around the league this season. The 30-year-old guard’s competitive spirit helped keep the Clippers fighting all season, whether trailing by 28 points with a vastly new lineup in Boston immediately after the trade deadline or by 31 points in Oakland during Game 2 of their first-round series against the Warriors.Beverley, among with Wilson Chandler (4.3 points and 3.1 rebounds), JaMychal Green (8.7 points and 6.5 rebounds) and Garrett Temple (4.7 points and 1.7 assists), all are unrestricted free agents this offseason. Ivica Zubac and Rodney McGruder will be restricted free agents.“I’m not going to get into all that,” Rivers said. “But I think (Beverley is a) very important part to our chemistry on our team.”Offered Beverley, who shot better than 43% from 3-point in games in 2019 and averaged eight rebounds per game in the postseason: “At the end of the day those are good decisions, (it’s) not like those are bad decisions you have to make. But, yeah, my heart is definitely with my teammates, for sure.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
