Video: Trevor Nunn Talks New Play Dessert
Legendary theatre Director Trevor Nunn will helm Dessert, a new play by Oliver Cotton making its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse. A black comedy with a few surprises up its sleeve, Dessert follows a dinner party held by a British financier and his wife for their American friends. As the evening progresses and the wine flows, secrets emerge and things get sinister.
If you’ve never caught one of his productions or aren’t familiar with his past work, Trevor has made his career directing such West End versions of Starlight Express, South Pacific and The Lion in Winter, proving he can turn his hand to a variety of shows.
Trevor spoke recently on the themes of Dessert; the inequality of the distribution of wealth and people getting exactly what they deserve.
Both Trevor and Oliver also described their thoughts on the story and issues raised in the play as well as the discussions it will spark in audience members.
You can book your tickets to Dessert from £10 in previews and from £20 in later performances, don’t miss out!
