Gethsemane by David Hare
Nothing is more important to a modern political party than fund-raising. But the values of the donors can’t always coincide with the professed beliefs of the party. Gethsemane is Hare's third play in a series that draws on recent events. The Permanent Way (2003) addressed the privatisation of Britain's railways, and Stuff Happens (2004) looked at the run-up to the Iraq war.
Gethsemane is at the National Theatre until 24th February, and then on tour in Windsor, Newcastle, Cambridge, Bath and Brighton.
