Overview

By JULIAN MITCHELL

Daily Telegraph
4 Star Rating 'Jeremy Herrin directs a gripping, detailed production that does equal justice to the play’s humour and its gathering sense of cruelty and darkness.'

The 1930s: an English Public School.

Bennett and Judd are both outsiders; one coming to terms with his homosexuality, the other already a committed Marxist. But the Establishment has traditional ways of dealing with rebels and when a scandal rocks the school, the young men must confront their beliefs and make choices which will have a momentous impact on their lives.

Julian Mitchell balances subtle wit with thought-provoking drama in this fictionalised account of the youth of such people as the spy Guy Burgess and the Communist John Cornford, who died in the Spanish Civil War.

Julian Mitchell’s plays include After Aida and his screenplays include August, Wilde, Vincent and Theo and Arabesque, as well as the film adaptation of Another Country starring Rupert Everett and Colin Firth in their first film roles.

Jeremy Herrin has directed Uncle Vanya and South Downs (also West End) for Chichester. He is Associate Director of the Royal Court Theatre where his credits include That Face.
Listen to our pre-show talk with Jeremy.

Other credits include This House for the National Theatre, Much Ado About Nothing for Shakespeare’s Globe, and the forthcoming Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies for the RSC.
