The Priory

Written by Michael Wynne

19 Nov - 9 Jan

Kate is delighted when she finds a country retreat that ticks all the boxes. Gathering together a select group of her closest friends to celebrate New Year's Eve, she is keen to start 2010 afresh. But successful, stressed-out thirtysomethings in search of a good time in the sticks can make for one very fearsome party... and some surprising resolutions.

Michael Wynne's buoyant new comedy takes a microscope to modern dilemmas about life, love and retro board games.

Cast includes Nick Blood, Jessica Hynes, Alastair Mackenzie, Joseph Millson, Rupert Penry-Jones, Charlotte Riley and Rachael Stirling.

The Priory has won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

Staged in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at the Royal Court last December, Michael Wynne’s The Priory told the story of a group of thirtysomething friends who had gathered at a country retreat to see in the New Year, with rather more stressful and sinister results than expected. Taking a microscope to 21st century dilemmas and early mid-life crisis, Wynne’s comedy drama boasted a stellar cast including Rupert Penry-Jones, Jessica Hynes, Joseph Millson and Rachael Stirling. First time Laurence Olivier Award winner Wynne’s other plays include The People Are Friendly and The Knocky for the Royal Court.

The Priory fought off competition from Calendar Girls by Tim Firth, England People Very Nice by Richard Bean and Jez Butterworth’s Parlour Song to take home the coveted award.
