CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Set in England in the 1920s, an impoverished British woman, who gives up her fancy and powerful lifestyle for her journalist boyfriend, befriends a terminally ill American heiress hoping she and her boyfriend will come into access with wealth and power again. Kate Croy and Merton Denver are engaged in a passionate clandestine live affair. Kate is desperately in love with Merton, who has all the qualities of a potentially excellent husband: he's handsome, witty and idealistic - the one asset he lacks is money, which ultimately renders him unsuitable as a mate. By chance Kate befriends a young American heiress, Milly Theale. When Kate discovers that Milly suffers from a mysterious and fatal disease she hatches a plan that can give all three characters something that they all want - but at a price! There are many angles in the play: tales of deception, social hypocrisy, conflict between our hearts desire and conscience... However, in the heart of his gripping story lies an unforgettable love triangle. A night of complexities and irony, moral treachery and more.
