The new play from Beth Steel propels us back to the 1970s and deals with the financial crisis in Latin America. With direction from Anna Ledwich, the production plays at the Hampstead Theatre from early September and will offer a gripping insight into a crisis that brought many countries to their knees.
Writer Beth Steel delves into a topic that we are all too familiar with, particularly considering the more recent recession, as she follows up her previous acclaimed work at the Hampstead Theatre, Wonderland, as well as shows like Ditch. She is a renowned talent whose work has earned her awards and nominations. It is clear she has a bright future ahead of her.
With Labyrinth she introduces us to the character of John Anderson - a man who finds himself in his dream job as he heads to Wall Street after graduating from college. What he discovers matches his expectations as untold wealth and prestige is heaped upon him. But he also heads out to countries that need loans and the extravagant lending in which they indulge is going to have horrifying consequences.
All of this is brought to us through the eyes of director Anna Ledwich, who has previously been behind a wealth of shows that have been brought to the stage of the Hampstead Theatre. The talented director showcases Kiss Me later in the year and previously directed The Argument and Deluge, in addition to Four minutes Twelve Seconds at the Trafalgar Studios and Blue Remembered Hills at the Chichester Festival Theatre.
Labyrinth is at the Hampstead Theatre from Thursday 1st September 2016.
