by Abi Morgan

Tickets: £9 - £12

About: Splendour

A play about decadence, desire and dictatorship.

Inside a beautiful state residence on the edge of an Eastern European city, four women wait. They talk – Toy
Story 2, PRADA handbags, chilli vodka... anything. For outside, as snow is falling, civil war looms ever nearer.

With wit and a characteristic delight in the strange, Abi Morganís writing brilliantly encompasses both the cruel veneer of our lies and the beating heart within.

Abi Morgan has written for stage, screen and television. Her plays include Skinned, Sleeping Around, Tiny Dynamite and Tender, which was nominated for a 2002 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award. Further
recognition for her work includes winning the 2003 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and receiving multiple awards for her hard- hitting TV dramas, White Girl and Sex Traffic. Splendour first premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 2000.

Matt Wilde is a former Associate Director of the National Theatre Studio and Out of Joint. He graduated from the RADA MA in Text and Performance Studies course in 1999. Recent work includes: The
Wonderful World of Dissocia by Anthony Neilson (Unicorn), Lost Monsters by Laurence Wilson (Liverpool Everyman) and Nocturne by Adam Rapp (Almeida).
