The Priory

By Michael Wynne

The Priory Top / Details
Kate is delighted when she finds a country retreat that ticks all the boxes. Gathering together a select group of her closest friends to celebrate New Year's Eve, she is keen to start 2010 afresh. But successful, stressed-out thirtysomethings in search of a good time in the sticks can make for one very fearsome party... and some surprising resolutions. Michael Wynne's buoyant new comedy takes a microscope to modern dilemmas about life, love and retro board games. Michael Wynne's previous plays include The People Are Friendly and The Knocky for the Royal Court, and Sell Out, Dirty Wonderland and The Boy Who Left Home. He also co-wrote the film My Summer of Love. Director Jeremy Herrin's recent work includes Tusk Tusk, The Vertical Hour and That Face, all at the Royal Court.
