National Theatre Live: This House @ Phoenix Art Museum We are suckers for drama -- housewives drama, runway drama, and anything with hair-pulling and/or name-calling -- and you can bet your ass-like behavior that our eyes will be glued.

But our absolute favorite source of drama? The government, of course.

In James Graham's acclaimed play, This House, we follow the manipulative lives of Britain's most corrupt members of Parliament as they bend the rules and sever ties in a struggle for power behind the scenes of Westminster in 1974.

Recorded live at the National Theatre in London and presented at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue, this show screens at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 1, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. General admission tickets are $18. Museum members pay $15. Call 602-257-1222 or visit -- Katie Johnson
