Splendour

BAY AREA PREMIERE



STARTS JUN 27, 2017


By Abi Morgan  |   Directed By Barbara Damashek


A revolution grows violent outside the opulent presidential palace of an unnamed country. Inside, four women await the arrival of the embattled dictator: his wife, her best friend, a British journalist, and a translator. As the political tension escalates, time refracts and earlier scenes replay from different perspectives. Morgan, the award-winning British playwright and screenwriter (The Iron Lady, Suffragette), takes the audience on a breath-taking journey with a fascinating theatricality that is at once compassionate, dispassionate, and probing.
