MONOGAMY

AT PARK THEATRE, LONDON – 6 Jun – 7 Jul 2018
A new comedy by Torben Betts

Starring Janie Dee

Directed by Alastair Whatley

Following the smash hit tours and New York transfer of Invincible, the Original Theatre Company are thrilled to present the world premiere of Torben Betts new comedy Monogamy.

Monogamy means sharing your life with one person, but what if you shared your kitchen with 5.6 million?

Caroline Mortimer, the nation’s favourite TV cook, has it all – a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy.

But beneath the immaculate furnishings, studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras – Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye. What happens when the cameras turn off and the truth comes out?

A searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy from one of the UK’s most exciting playwrights, Torben Betts (Muswell Hill, Invincible).

Janie Dee as Caroline

Olivier and Evening Standard award-winner Janie Dee will star as Caroline. Critically acclaimed for her roles on stage and screen, Janie Dee has worked closely with many leading playwrights including Alan Ayckbourn, Michael Frayn and Harold Pinter and is currently starring in the National Theatre’s production of Follies.

 

An uncommonly talented playwright” Time Out

“Torben Betts is the most exciting theatre writing talent I have come across in many a year” Alan Ayckbourn
