Olivier Award winner Simon Russell Beale returns to the Donmar Warehouse to star in Steve Waters’ new play Temple, which is inspired by the 2011 Occupy London movement.
On 15 October 2011 Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On 21 October 2011 a building that had kept open through floods, the Blitz and terrorist threats closes its doors. On 28 October City of London initiates legal action against Occupy to begin removing them from outside the Cathedral…
Directed by Howard Davies, Temple is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.
Playing the Dean, Russell Beale returns to the Donmar Warehouse following performances in The Philanthropist, Twelfth Night and Uncle Vanya, for which he picked up an Olivier Award for Best Actor. The actor’s recent stage credits include King Lear, Timon Of Athens and Collaborators at the National Theatre.
