Linda at the Royal Court Theatre



"Old for a woman means worthless. Invisible... Well I haven't worked this hard to be pushed aside at the last hurdle. I refuse to be silenced. I will not disappear. I am Linda Wilde. And I'm still here!"

Stage veteran Noma Dumezweni takes on what could be a career defining role with Linda at the Royal Court Theatre’s Jerwood Theatre Downstairs. Dumezweni has teamed up with respected writer Penelope Skinner for a powerful new production that promises to be thought-provoking.

The play tells the story of Linda, an award-winning business woman who is happily married and who strives to be an inspiring mother. She has devoted her life to changing the world and seems to have everything that anybody could possibly want. But, hitting the age of 55, she realises that she is far from satisfied with her lot in the world and decides to embark on a plan that could turn out to be one of the most ambitious and risky of her life. Determined to avoid the indignity of being considered old, past-it and worthless, she treads a fine line in attempting to avoid being silenced and pushed aside by society.

Sex and the City's Kim Cattrall has had to withdraw from the production due to medical reasons.
