London, 1949. Terence Rattigan is one of the best-known playwrights in town, but his relationship with the actor Kenneth Morgan is a closely-guarded secret. When Kenny falls into the arms of a younger man, emotions reach fever pitch. Behind the closed doors of a flat in Camden Town, the unspeakable will have to be spoken.
After a sold-out run, Kenny Morgan – the critically-acclaimed new drama by Tony-nominated playwright Mike Poulton (Wolf Hall, Bring Up The Bodies, Fortune’s Fool on Broadway) – returns for 4 weeks only.
This gripping tale of destructive passions exposes the limits to which people will go for love, and the extraordinary real-life events behind Rattigan’s most famous play, The Deep Blue Sea.
An elegant, plaintive new drama ... A quality evening
Deft and witty ... Poulton’s revealing play digs into the agonies of unrequited love and of forbidden desire
A rich, gripping, resonant production ... Paul Keating [is] exceptional ... Lucy Bailey’s smoky, taut production is beautifully performed throughout.
Lucy Bailey's production is pretty much flawless ... Paul Keating gives a career-redefining performance as Morgan ... This is surely already a major contender for the accolade of best new play of the year. Unmissable.
