About this show

In the opulent presidential palace of an unnamed country, four women await the arrival of the embattled dictator — his wife, her best friend, a British journalist, and a translator — while a revolution grows violent outside. As the political tension escalates, time refracts and earlier scenes replay from different perspectives. Abi Morgan, an award-winning British playwright and screenwriter (The Iron Lady), sends the audience on a breathtaking journey with a fascinating theatricality that is at once compassionate, dispassionate, and probing.
