Theatre to make you think
On her one night off this week, lawyer Gail is on a date with a man called Ken. It isn’t going well. All he really wants is some sympathy. All she wants is a bottle of rosé, a little fun, and to forget it all. But Gail can’t switch off. Because up and down the country people are being forced to represent themselves in court – where is the justice in our justice system? In 2008 Rebecca Lenkiewicz became the first living female playwright to have an original play staged on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre (Her Naked Skin). Her quietly powerful and all-seeing new play, The Invisible, is written in response to real-life cuts to legal aid, weaving together the stories of ordinary people fighting for their right to justice. Unreserved seating. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
"Passionate and entertaining."
