THE GREEN BAY TREE

by Mordaunt Shairp
Directed by Tim Luscombe
Deasigned by Gregor Donnelly


"I hope I shan't meet you one day in Piccadilly with a painted face, just because you must have linen sheets"

A beautiful young man is forced to choose between the love of his fiancee and the lifestyle of his male mentor.

This is the infamous comedy of manipulation that, in 1934, made a leading Broadway star of Laurence Olivier, opposite his then-wife Jill Esmond.

This major revival - the first since the 1950s - is directed by internationally acclaimed Olivier Award nominee Tim Luscombe.
It stars Christopher Leveaux, recently seen in the Michael Grandage season (Noel Coward Theatre) in the Olivier role, alongside Poppy Drayton, well-known as Madeleine Allsopp in last year's Downton Abbey.

'A wonderful piece of work... brilliantly done and sensationally successful'
Laurence Olivier 'Confessions of an Actor'


CAST:
Alister Cameron, Poppy Drayton, Richard Heap, Christopher Leveaux
and Richard Stirling


THE GUARDIAN
“Tim Luscombe’s immaculately designed production” “Richard Stirling certainly captures the character’s mix of exquisite taste and iron determination.
There are also good performances from Christopher Leveaux as the sexually ambivalent Julian, Poppy Drayton as an unusually well-attired vet and Alister
Cameron as a gravely omniscient butler”

LIBBY PURVES
“Leveaux gives a real sense of a youth struggling to escape the damage done by soft spoiling..” “... terrific confrontations between Dulcimer and Poppy Drayton’s fine, angry Leonora...” “a grand melodramatic conclusion..”

WHATSONSTAGE
“Mordaunt Shairp's riveting 1933 play... revived here in a skilful production...” “... there's no denying the conviction with which Richard Stirling makes Dulcimer an art deco lampshade, posing and preening...”

THE STAGE
“... intriguing play... pertinent, contemporary revival...” “strong, central performances from Christopher Leveaux as Julian and Poppy Drayton as Leonora..”

Tuesday to Saturday 7.30pm, Saturday/Sunday matinees 3.30pm

£22.00 £18.00 concessions.
