David Hare's PLENTY, one of the most celebrated plays in The Publicâ€™s history, returns this season in a riveting new production featuring Olivier and Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (Betrayal, The Constant Gardener) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Troilus and Cressida).
A groundbreaking work by the Tony and Olivier Award-winning writer of Skylight and The Hours, PLENTY is the story of Susan Traherne, a fiercely intelligent British secret agent flown into France during the second world war. Susanâ€™s experiences among her war-time colleagues and over the two decades that follow are distilled in powerful scenes in this endlessly layered work about a woman of remarkable bravery, who cannot find in peacetime the values and relationships she cherished in war.
When it premiered at The Public in 1982 The New York Times called PLENTY, "an explosive theatrical vision of a world that was won and lost during and after World War II. A relentlessly gripping play" that
"punctures our conscience."
Five-time Tony nominee David Leveaux (Arcadia, Cyrano de Bergerac) directs this witty and profoundly moving drama, highly original in structure, about one womanâ€™s struggle to lead a liberated life before the world was ready to set her free.
