Olivier Award-winner Janie Dee stars in Monogamy, a searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy from one of the UK’s most exciting playwrights, Torben Betts.
Monogamy means sharing your life with one person, but what if you shared your kitchen with 5.6 million? Caroline Mortimer (Dee), the nation’s favourite TV cook, has it all – a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy.
But beneath the immaculate furnishings, studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras – Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye. What happens when the cameras turn off and the truth comes out?
One of Britain’s most celebrated actresses, Dee has won the three most prestigious awards in British Theatre: the Olivier Award, the Evening Standard Award and Critics’ Circle Awards for Best Actress in a Play, as well as the Obie and Theatre World Best Newcomer Award in New York. She has most recently appeared in the West End stage in Follies at the National Theatre, and she has been seen in numerous television shows and films including Dare To Be Wild and Midsomer Murders.
She is joined in the cast of Monogamy by former EastEnders villain Charlie Brooks, who plays Sally, and stage and screen star Patrick Ryecart (Duke of Norfolk, The Crown; Sir Hugh Bodrugan, Poldark) as Mike.
Now she stars in the world premiere of new comedy Monogamy, which arrives at the Park Theatre at the culmination of a UK tour, directed by Alastair Whatley.
