About: PROGRESS by Doug Lucie

1983, Kilburn. 34-year-old Will has flung open the doors of his marital home, but his liberal experiment is not going to plan. He’s been condemned to the sofa by his wife's lesbian lover, despite having invited her in; his over-sexed men's discussion group seems bent on self-destruction; his tabloid hack of a lodger is a permanently offensive fixture; and now battered wife Ange has come to stay, her abusive husband in tow.

Doug Lucie's brilliantly sharp comic drama takes a hilarious and scathing look at sexuality, marriage and morals, mercilessly exposing middle class hypocrisies. Brutal, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny, Progress questions whether a combination of security and excitement in a relationship is ever possible. Almost 25 years on, how far have we progressed?

Last seen in Britain in 1986, Progress was hailed by the Evening Standard as ‘an anguished, hilarious masterpiece’ and as ‘a masterpiece of comedy’ by The Times. Progress won Doug Lucie the Plays and Players ‘Most Promising Playwright’ award.

Following their sell-out production of The Dice House, Silver Thread continues its policy of reviving outstanding contemporary British plays at the award-winning Union Theatre.
