The Original Theatre Company and Ghost Light Theatre Productions Ltd present
Monogamy by Torben Betts starring Janie Dee
Monogamy means sharing your life with one person, but what if you shared your kitchen with 5.6 million?
Caroline Mortimer, the nation’s favourite TV cook, has it all – a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy. But beneath the immaculate furnishings, studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras – Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye. What happens when the cameras turn off and the truth comes out?
A searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy from one of the UK’s most exciting playwrights, Torben Betts.
From the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Torben Betts’ smash-hit comedy Invincible and directed by Alastair Whatley (Wait Until Dark, Birdsong).
Olivier and Evening Standard award-winner Janie Dee will star as Caroline. Critically acclaimed for her roles on stage and screen, Janie Dee has worked closely with many leading playwrights including Alan Ayckbourn, Michael Frayn and Harold Pinter and is currently starring in the National Theatre’s production of Follies.
Joining the cast are Charlie Brooks (Eastenders) and Patrick Ryecart (The Crown) as Sally and Mike, alongside Jack Archer as Leo, Genevieve Gaunt as Amanda and Jack Sandle as Graeme.
