About

Following on from his success with Daytona at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket Oliver Cotton, has written a new play for our time, Dessert. Directed by Trevor Nunn the world premiere of this powerful, thought-provoking play about wealth, greed and the lengths to which people will go to claim what's theirs, runs at Southwark Playhouse from 12 July. 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... "Many actors, John Osborne, Harold Pinter, and for that matter, William Shakespeare, decided not only to act in plays but to write their own. I have known for many years that Oliver Cotton is of this number. I have so happily and often worked with him as an actor, and now I am hugely looking forward to encountering him in a different role when I direct his burningly relevant new play" Trevor Nunn.
