A Prayer For My DaughterA steamy summer night, 01:00. A grubby police office in downtown NYC. Two cops and two crooks battle with wits and fists to uncover the truth about a murder.

Thomas Babe’s thrilling psychological drama is a cat-and-mouse power struggle between four hoods with something to hide.

A hit at the Royal Court and New York’s Public Theater in the 70s, this is the play’s first London revival.

This production is suitable for theatregoers aged 16 and older.
