Versailles at Donmar Warehouse

From to


See Peter Gill’s new play about the legacy of the decisions made at the end of WWI, plus an accompanying series of talks entitled Impossible Conversations.

In the drawing room of the Rawlinson's Kent villa, life is slowly returning to what it was before the outbreak of the great war.

Leonard Rawlinson is part of the British delegation that is sent to Versailles, to record the treaty that will define a new Europe, the Middle East and the rest of the world.

As he is haunted by the loss of a fallen loved one, Leonard thinks that choices made in Paris will shape the world for years to come.

Accompanying the new play is Impossible Conversations- a series of events throughout the run of the production allowing some of today's most respected minds to talk about the Great War and its legacy.

Shami Chakrabarti, A. C. Grayling, Max Hastings, Susie Orbach and Ahdaf Soueif, will each examine different parts of the historical legacy of both the war and the Treaty of Versailles.
