The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas + Post Show Talk
Writer of Channel Four hit series Utopia turns his hand to a tale of savage greed
Tonight there is the added treat of a post performance talk with director Vicky Featherstone. Before that, Dennis Kelly's Royal Court debut deals with a journey of unrelenting capitalism. Pitching through the decades as the audience watches one man's life unravel. After writing the stage version of Matilda, Kelly takes a darker turn into the mind of Gorge Mastromas. Gorge could have been an ordinary guy, a run-of-the-mill type who just gets on with his lot. Instead, a fluke incident forces him to choose a darker path, which takes him to dizzying heights of success...whatever the cost. General admission, best available seats. Running time approximately 2 hours 45 minutes, including interval. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
