THEATRE: The Vote | Donmar Warehouse | 24 Apr – 7 May
Set in a fictional London polling station, ‘The Vote’ dramatises the final 90 minutes before the polls close in this year’s General Election. On the actual night of the election, the final performance of the play will be broadcast live on More4 at the exact time it portrays.
