Deny, Deny, Deny

Published November 4, 2016

Deny, Deny, Deny is the new play by journalist-turned-playwright Jonathan Maitland (writer of An Audience With Jimmy Saville). It’s a searing and provocative work that raises profound questions about ethics and morality and exposes the murkier side of competitive sport.

Set in 2026, the play follows Eve, an athlete at the start of a promising career. Determined to be the best, she’s offered cutting-edge gene therapy by her charismatic coach. This treatment’s safety and legality is soon called into question by her fellow athletes, the media and eventually the sport’s governing body.

A gripping tale of sport, science and very human emotions, Deny, Deny, Deny delicately handles one of society’s most contentious issues. Oliver Award nominee and Laurence Olivier Bursary recipient Juma Sharkha beautifully captures her character Eve’s moral descent as she debates whether to cross a very thin line, perfectly articulating her character’s moral dilemma.

Deny, Deny, Deny runs at the Park Theatre until 3 December. You can book tickets through the venue’s website.
