Designer Simon Anthony Wells

"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.
Don't miss the London premiere of this dazzling and seductive new musical.

THE FIRST MAN
By Eugene O' Neill

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.

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.

"Director Graham Woolnough has created a delightful and touching production and Ian Stark should become a national treasure. This is one invitation to tea you should certainly accept" - BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE *****
"The script is superb, the acting faultless and a very happy audience rolled along lovingly as Billy spilled the beans" - REMOTE GOAT *****
"A theatrical treat for those with any political disposition.....Ian Stark’s Backstairs Billy pinpoints the highs and lows of a career serving the Queen Mother Tea with the old Queen is compellingly outrageous and significant" - BROADWAY BABY ****
A clever and well-structured script, professionally performed...an opulently furnished set....a noble piece of tittle-tattle. Cheers!" - THREE WEEKS EDINBURGH ****
"Ian Stark’s performance is constantly engaging ....the writing is lively...Woolnough who also directed the show, provides plenty of wit and Stark’s energetic flare ensures it is never a chore to sit through... amusing and well delivered" - LONDON EVENING STANDARD ***
