Dessert | 29th April – 4th May 2019

Dessert by Oliver Cotton  

Directed by Howard James

“Dessert is a bit of guilty treat” The Independent, July 2017

This production is Theatre 62’s entry in the 2019 Bromley Theatre Guild Full Length Play Festival – and will be the amateur premiere of this play.  The play will adjudicated after the performance on Thursday 2nd May.

A British financier and his wife host a lavish dinner party for their affluent American friends. The food is delicious, the conversation animated and dessert is on its way – when from one second to another, the evening takes a sinister and alarming turn…

With dark comic moments and unexpected twists, this is a powerful, thought-provoking play about wealth, greed and the lengths to which people will go to claim what’s theirs
