Background


Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig's blazing new thriller is based on the true story of a whistleblowing heroine and her extraordinary mission to expose a cover-up of epic proportions.


Her previous plays include Lidless (Trafalgar Studios), The World of Extreme Happiness (National Theatre) and Snow in Midsummer (RSC).


Michael Boyd, former Artistic Director of the RSC, makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead Theatre following the acclaimed 2016 hit, The Intelligent Homosexuals Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures by Tony Kushner.
