Janie Dee Stars in New Comedy by Torben Betts MONOGAMY
Coming to Richmond Theatre 28 May – 2 .
JuneOlivier and Evening Standard award-winner Janie Dee will star as Caroline in Monogamy, the new comedy by Torben Betts coming to Richmond Theatre on Mon 28 May – Sat 2 June.
Janie has received wide critical acclaim for her roles on stage and screen and has worked closely with many leading playwrights including Alan Ayckbourn, Michael Frayn and Harold Pinter.
Joining her on stage are Charlie Brooks, best known for her award-winning performance as Janine Butcher in EastEnders, Jack Archer (Quaint Honour), Genevieve Gaunt (The Royals), Patrick Ryecart (The Crown, Poldark) and Jack Sandle (The Tudors).
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?
From the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Torben Betts’ smash-hit comedy Invincible and directed by Alastair Whatley (The Importance of Being Earnest, Wait Until Dark, Birdsong), Monogamy is a searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy from one of the UK’s most exciting playwrights.
