"A clever, fascinating play... a barbed, fluent production.... highly recommended" 
The Independent

"This isn’t like those other ones. This gets called something different.

It gets called the Monica Lewinsky Scandal."

 

January 1998: America gets rocked by one of the biggest political sex scandals of all time: The Monica Lewinsky Scandal.

 

Slyly exhuming the little blue dress that launched the biggest media circus of a generation, the five women who were at the centre of this infamous scandal collide on stage in this political thriller. A First Lady, a secretary, a daughter, a confidant, and an intern take us through the corridors of power and behind the closed doors where the abuse of that power took place.

 

A theatrical battle emerges over how it all went down, who were the heroes and villains, and why, twenty years later, we're only beginning to grapple with one of the most challenging questions in American political history: How do we respond to women seeking power, and the men who misuse that power?

 

As the world faces a new dawn in how it thinks and talks about historic and recent cases of abuse of power, DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS takes us to the heart of the first sex scandal of the internet age.

"I am a man, I am just a man."

April 3, 1968. Room 306, the Lorraine Motel, Memphis. The smell of cigarettes and coffee hangs thick in the air as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. winds down from a day of preaching and marching.

An intimate look into the quieter moments of King’s life, The Mountaintop chips away at the myth of the great man to expose his fears about his family, his country and the ever-looming threat of a violent death.

Set during the height of America’s Civil Rights Movement, Katori Hall’s sharp and powerful play confronts the legend and his legacy. Are we really free or do we live in a world of false liberation? 

Roy Alexander Weise, winner of the JMK Award 2016, directs this revival of the Olivier Award-winner about King’s last night on earth.

“Impressive two-hander that asks probing questions about modern Britain…The power of Leigh’s story lies in its unflinching approach and the trust it places in its performers.”

The world premiere

 

Tuesday 17 May – Saturday 11 June 2016

 

“No scars at all. Which, when you think about it, is maybe not such a good sign”

 

Catherine was fifteen when she was found.

 

She and her mother shared a secret world in an anonymous one-bedroom flat in London. No one is even sure if she's ever left the room she was found in. She can't walk and can't speak.

 

Her recovery seems impossible. But young people can be shockingly resilient, especially with inspired medical care. Sponsored by a fundraising drive led by a tabloid newspaper, her only living relative has been able to get Catherine the best private care that money can buy. She responds well to the experimental treatment. But she seems to be getting more violent, and remains stubbornly resistant to language. Or is she?

 

Soon, Catherine's doctors and half-sister begin to discover what it is, exactly, that they've uncovered...

 

A fairytale of modern Britain, inspired by true events.

Nominated for three Off West End Awards
