When Laurence Olivier asks Vivien for a divorce,
her response created a world-wide sensation.
Then, a new revelation takes her to the edge, and she fights for his love - and her life. But is it too late? The truth is revealed.

Written by award-winning playwright Donald Macdonald, and starring Susie Lindeman, (Merchant Ivory’s Howards End, title role in Catherine, Maigret, Let Them Eat Cake - and 5 West End roles including opposite Vivien’s early co-star Rex Harrison), This season is in a new collaboration with Video Artist Mic Gruchy and Stage Director Cal McCrystal.


Donald MacDonald is an award winning international playwright and actor. Other plays include the smash-hit comedy "Caravan"

Press from Paris:
"Astonishing. Devouring passion incarnated bewitchingly, almost as if by magic by an actress without match.
Le Nouvel Observateur.

There is high tension in Letter to Larry, and Susie Lindeman literally fragments. This is the revelation of a magnificent actress. Macdonald’s poignant play is filled with emotion, infinite grace, and surprising dynamic CULTUREBOX.

An interpretation of genius, tour-de- force. Exquisitely written…holds the audience in suspense.

SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE
Words and Music by Michael John LaChiusa
Based on short stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa
As translated by Takashi Kojima
Directed by Adam Lenson
Musical Direction by Richard Bates

"I only told you the truth."
- In Feudal Japan, two lovers seek to escape a doomed relationship.
- In 1951 New York, a body is discovered but multiple testimonies of how it ended up there stubbornly refuse to align.
- In 2005 New York, a priest wrestling with his faith orchestrates a hoax that backfires with unexpected results.
See What I Wanna See is a vibrant and provocative new musical that looks at the difference between what we think happened and what actually did.

Comprised of three interlocking stories it asks us to question: do we ever see the truth clearly? Michael John LaChiusa's beautiful and unexpected music blends a plethora of influences from jazz and salsa to classical and pop into a fluid, cinematic score.
It is a fiercely intelligent, heartfelt piece of theatre unlike anything you've seen before.

The show premiered at New York's Public Theatre in 2005 and starred Idina Menzel
in her first role following her Tony Award winning creation of the part of Elphaba in Wicked.

Michael John LaChiusa is the Tony nominated composer of The Wild Party, Hello Again, Marie Christine, and Giant. The show is based on three short stories by acclaimed Japanese writer Ryu Akutagawa.

A highly autobiographical work, this is a tale of male pride, family jealousy and maternal longing from one of America’s greatest playwrights.
Following the tragic death of their two young daughters, Martha and Curtis Jayson have made a pact to never have any more children. For ten years they have thrown themselves into anthropological fieldtrips around the world, but having finally returned home to Connecticut, they find themselves suffocated by provincial life and the small-town nature of the Jayson family.
On the eve of Martha’s 39th birthday, as she longs for another child, Curtis plans to embark on their most ambitious expedition yet: an arduous five year journey to Outer Mongolia in the search for the origin of man known as 'The Missing Link'.

EXCORCISM
By Eugene O' Neill

Directed by Grace Wessels


Ned Malloy is a young man who is down on his luck. Living in a tawdry NY rooming house with his alcoholic roommate Jimmy, and forced to stage a humiliating event in order to escape his miserable marriage; after hitting rock bottom, Ned has a life altering choice to make.
Written in 1919, upon it being presented in 1920, O’Neill pulled the play after a few performances and destroyed all the copies he could find. This is the only play to directly deal with O’Neill’s own attempted suicide in 1912: an event that propelled O’Neill to decide on becoming a playwright and write the tragedies that would transform American theatre.

Rediscovered in 2003, and finally published in 2011, this is the first time this personal piece will be seen on the London stage. The first and only American recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and awarded the Pulitzer Prize an unheard of 4 times, O’Neill is widely acknowledged as the “Father of American Drama” or the “American Shakespeare.”

Join us immediately after the show for a Q&A about O’Neill’s life,
his body of work, and his continued influence on modern theatre.

FAREWELL TO THE THEATRE
A hand-in-script performance of Harley Granville-Barker's last play.

Produced and acted by Eileen Page
and Hayward Morse


A famous actress decides the time has come to retire. She talks to her lawyer about her reasons. They remember the past and contemplate the future. This extraordinary beautiful one-act play, written in 1916 when Granville-Barker was in America coincided with his disillusionment with the possibility for a progressive theatre in England. But it is also a plea for the enduring value of theatre.

Her 60 year career encompasses Shakespeare, contemporary writers, film, television and musical theatre. Her long association with the RSC includes Peter Brooke’s “Love Labour Lost” and “Henry V” with Paul Scofield, returning in the 80’s for “Richard 11”, “The Winter’s Tale”, “Mother Courage”, and “Waste” which transferred to the West End. West End musicals include Heidi Shiller in “Follies”, the Duchess in “My and my Girl”. Signora Contini in “Nine” Festival Hall. “A Word from our Sponsor”, Scarborough transferring to the Minvera, Chichester. Recent theatre “Fastest Clock in the Universe”, Hampstead, “Les Liasons Dangereuse”, Salisbury. “The River Line” Jermyn Street Theatre, “Gays the Word”, Finborough and Jermyn Street Theatre. Television includes “The Secret Army”, “An Unwanted Woman”, “Absolute Hell” and “Midsummer Murders”.

TEA WITH THE OLD QUEEN

The fictional diaries of Backstairs Billy
Written by Graham Woolnough


A Funny and moving, witty and poignant play is how critics have described this refreshingly intimate, well observed inside story of the Queen Mother’s Royal Household. William Tallon, “Steward and Page of the Backstairs to the Queen Mother”, otherwise known as “Backstairs Billy” regales us with anecdotes from his Fictional Diaries with wry, understated humour wrapped deliciously in the tissues of high camp.
With discretion and diplomacy, he ties up any little royal mishaps; plays ‘Dame’
in the party Christmas panto, dances with her Maj’ and even sprays air freshener after Prince Philip ‘lets one off’. Add a cocktail of behind-the-scenes goings on;
the meet-and-greets and the pressing-of-the-flesh and we end up with a riot
of a play.

Billy spills the beans from the drawing room of his flat in the Grace and Favour Gate Lodge of Clarence House. Princess Margaret on the Scotch and Benson & Hedges refusing to stop smoking indoors – even after the fire at Windsor, Charles crestfallen and confused asking for advice, Her Maj’ welcoming the Chinese Ambassador, Mr.Wu, and even Tony and Cherie Blair feature as figures of fun. William John Stephenson Tallon had served the Queen Mother all his adult life, rising through the ranks from Boy Page to head of the Queen Mother’s Household and, as such, was intimately involved in the ‘Gilded Cage’ in which they lived. He died a few years after the Queen Mother taking with him all the secrets of her Court… or so they thought.
Produced and directed by award winning writer Graham Woolnough, Tea with the Old Queen has been touring the UK delighting audiences.
It features Ian Stark, an award winning, musical-comedy actor with a theatrical history spanning forty years, giving a tour de force performance as Billy.
