In a housing crisis, a young couple are offered a home of their own. But at what price?

Invasive and unnerving, the World Premiere of Mike Bartlett’s provocative play Game invites us to spy on a family as they explore a dangerous new way to live.

Game, which radically reconfigures the Almeida auditorium, reunites Olivier Award-winning playwright Bartlett with acclaimed director-designer duo Sacha Wares and Miriam Buether (Wild Swans, Sucker Punch, My Child).

The production follows Bartlett’s recent success with the West End transfer of King Charles III following its run at the Almeida Theatre. His other plays include My Child, Cock, Artefacts, Love, Love, Love and Earthquakes In London.
