Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Fri 11 Jun 2021,
For one night only - a star-studded play reading, streamed live on stage from Oxford Playhouse.
Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Fifty years after the war that brought them together, three Special Operations Executive agents meet to record interviews for a television documentary.
As Leo, Vera and John wait to be interviewed in a beautiful English garden, drinking tea and doing the crossword, pleasantries give way to deeper darker subjects. A web of self-deception, lies and guilt begins to emerge. Only when all three are about to leave for London in a taxi, for “a cold supper behind Harrods” does the disturbing truth emerge.
David Morley’s heart-stopping play stars national treasure and 4-time BAFTA Award-winner David Jason, Stephanie Cole and Anton Lesser with Saffron Coomber and Lucy Doyle.
Produced by the award-winning Original Theatre Company, whose recent successes include hit online productions of Birdsong and The Haunting of Alice Bowles and stage productions including the five-star revival of Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art.
The production will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and creative team.
