Donmar Warehouse‘s latest production; ‘Limehouse’, features an original score by Air-Edel’s Rupert Cross, recorded in Studio 1 by Nick Taylor. The production stars award-winning Roger Allam, Nathalie Armin, Paul Chahidi, Debra Gillet, and Tom Goodman-Hill and was directed by Polly Findlay.
One Sunday morning, four prominent Labour politicians – Bill Rodgers, Shirley Williams, Roy Jenkins and David Owen – gather in private at Owen’s home in Limehouse, east London. They are desperate to find a political alternative. Should they split their party, divide their loyalties, and risk betraying everything they believe in? Would they be starting afresh, or destroying forever the tradition that nurtured them?
Steve Waters’ thrilling new drama takes us behind closed doors to imagine the personal conflicts behind the making of political history.
