The Old Vic Theatre will be the home of “Democracy” this June as Michael Frayn’s 2003 play finds its way back to the UK. The show will be one of two to appear in the capital this year from the pen of Frayn as “Noises Off” also has its chance at the Novello Theatre, though “Democracy” is certain to get a lot of attention due to its real-life story at its core.
This real life story is set in the years after the Second World War as West German Chancellor Willy Brandt faces various obstacles as he attempts to fulfil ambitions in Europe, which is fractured and needs to be brought back together.
Michae Frayn has been behind a wealth of shows over the years and whilst “Noises Off” and “Democracy” are both well known, he is also known for the likes of “Copenhagen”, “Audience”, “Look Look” and “Afterlife”, among others, in addition to numerous translations of the work of Anton Chekhov. He is an acclaimed writer and his work is bound to have people hoping to get theatre tickets before it is too late.
So, following in the footsteps of “Noises Off” from the Christmas season, Michael Frayn’s “Democracy” lands at the Old Vic Theatre on Friday 15th June 2012 and continues to Saturday 14th July 2012.
