Martin Jarvis directs the British premiere of David Mamet’s brand-new thriller, set in New York City. Joan (Rebecca Pidgeon) is a devout Catholic and a mother, whose son Michael has mutilated the body of his nice Jewish girlfriend. He awaits trial in prison. Joan will stop at nothing to free him, even blackening the dead girl’s character. In a series of gripping encounters, Joan attempts to persuade her husband Alan (Clark Gregg), Jewish lawyer Mr Stone (David Paymer) and priest (John Pirruccello) to do her deadly bidding. She even tries blackmail. This present-day, churchgoing Lady Macbeth is driven by her misguided views on intermarriage. Mysterious Mrs Charles (Tony-award nominee Fionnula Flanagan) might provide a solution to Michael’s freedom by inspiring Joan’s own capacity for belief, and the strength of her maternal instinct. Then, an extraordinary, thought-provoking final twist in this thrilling and provocative drama.
