        Duck House, The

Duck House, The

The Duck House is an outrageous laugh out loud comedy set in a world of dodgy receipts, dodgier deceit, and pure Parliamentary panic. May 2009. Gordon Brown's Government is in meltdown and a General Election is just one year away. Labour backbencher Robert Houston loves being an MP and will do anything to save his seat - including change sides. All is going well with his switch from red to blue until, the Expenses Scandal breaks. As public fury mounts over taxpayers' millions being frittered away on second homes, moat cleaning, cable porn and duck houses, Robert is soon in big, big trouble.
