Acclaimed stage and screen actress Sinéad Cusack stars in Robert Hastie’s revival of Abi Morgan’s devastating play Splendour at the Donmar Warehouse.

Set in the opulent drawing room of a Presidential Palace, Splendour sees a Western photojournalist await the return of a dictator. She is here to take his portrait. The dictator’s wife, her best friend and an interpreter wait with her. Prada shoes, vodka glasses and light fingers tap out the time. He is late, very late…

All four women harbour secrets and suspicions. All four are in danger. This is the day that revolution comes to the streets.

Cusack, whose stage credits include Other Desert Cities at The Old Vic, is joined in the cast by Game Of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley (Othello, Donmar Warehouse), Zawe Ashson (Narrative, Royal Court) and Genevieve O’Reilly (The Doctor’s Dilemma, National Theatre).
