The play has been adapted from the original American setting to a British university, particularly resonant following the Browne Report and its impact on funding for higher education. Kevin McGown will play pompous academic John and Claire Louise Cordwell will portray Carol, a mousy, confused cipher; described as ‘Mamet’s most fully realised female character’.
The audience are invited to decide for themselves: who is right and who is wrong? But it soon becomes clear that nothing is black and white.
