As a child, Joan saw something she wasn’t meant to, and that brief glimpse is destined to affect her for the rest of her life. In a world struck by fear and chaos and weighted by governmental surveillance, it’s difficult to know who (or what) is on your side.
The hat-centric production plays host to an exciting collaboration, with students from the costume design course at the London College of Fashion working with the theatre to create hats for the play’s well-known parade scene. The Donmar apparently remains committed to its manifesto to develop new artists, even beyond the stage.
Lyndsey Turner’s productions at the Donmar include Aristocrats and Faith Healer, and her success spans mega-hits such as directing Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet and more experimental new writing. Turner is also the third female director to receive an Olivier Award since the honours began. If anyone can keep Churchill’s dystopia alive, she can.
