‘Now it’s your turn to act…’

Overview

Ageing thespian Richard is preparing to direct his first theatre class in a maximum security prison, assisted by his former-actress ex-wife Jane and an inexperienced social worker called Alice. When only two inmates turn up he decides to go ahead with the class nonetheless - and so begins a captivating and darkly comic exploration of life, within the walls.

Written by the multi Molière Award-winning Alexis Michalik (Edmond, Le Porteur d'histoire, Le Cercle des illusionnistes) the critically acclaimed Intra Muros will enjoy its UK Premiere at Park Theatre.

Full of Michalik’s trademark sharp wit and extraordinary method of storytelling, including a live on-stage DJ; this multi-faceted, provocative comedy drama questions our concept of time and its effect on the human spirit.

Critic reviews

Intra Muros starts as what seems like a fairly ordinary play, before developing into a shocking and engrossing story

· A Younger Theatre

Unusual and unforgettable, Ché Walker’s production is one theatrical experiment that pays off in the end

· The Times

This prison-set theatre satire deserves locking up

· Time Out

Slick staging of French playwright Alexis Michalik’s sentimental prison drama

· The Stage

Prison play takes liberties with a serious subject

· The Guardian

For all its inventiveness Michalik's play is frequently unable to stand up to scrutiny, under-serving both its setting and its form

· WhatsOnStage

A phenomenally engaging play of immense magnitude and depth

· The Upcoming
