From the playwright behind award-winning hit musical Matilda, comes a new dark morality tale spanning three decades, The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas.
How far could you progress of deceit, corruption and success at all cost came easy? Gorge Mastromas creates three golden rules for success, regardless of the cost. Follow him on his journey from innocence to greed and knotted honesty, which begins with the early promise of the 70s and moves through to the remorseless capitalism of the 80s and 90s.
In addition to Matilda The Musical, playwright Dennis Kelly’s credits include The God’s Weep for the Royal Shakespeare Company and Love And Money at the Young Vic. On television he was behind Channel 4’s unsettling hit drama Utopia.
The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas marks Vicky Featherstone’s first directorial outing as Artistic Director of the Royal Court, since joining the theatre from the National Theatre of Scotland.
This production is suitable for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
