The Orange Tree Theatre presents Mike Noble (The Almighty Sometimes, Royal Exchange; Road, Royal Court; Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in the West End) and Charlotte Randle (Yerma, Young Vic/New York; Medea, Almeida) in the world première of Rose Lewenstein's new play Cougar, a co-production with English Touring Theatre, which explores the impact of climate change and consumerism.

We're in a hotel.
We're always in a hotel.

And each room is exactly the same as the last room, and the one before that, and the one before that...

Leila wants to inspire global change. John needs to get his shit together.

They have an arrangement. But managing an affair isn't easy when the world around you is falling apart.

A new play about what - and who - we consume.

Just promise me you won't
You know
Fall in love.

The all-female creative team is led by Director Chelsea Walker, who returns to the Orange Tree following her production of Clare McIntyre's Low Level Panic in 2017 along with Designer Rosanna Vize who won the Off West End Award for Best Design. The Lighting Designer is Jess Bernberg, Sound Designer & Composer Alexandra Faye Braithwaite, Movement Director Shelley Maxwell and Casting Consultant Annelie Powell CDG. This is the Orange Tree's third co-production with English Touring Theatre following Martin Crimp's Dealing with Clair and Terence Rattigan's French Without Tears.

Cougar is followed by Matthew Xia's major revival of Athol Fugard's Blood Knot (Press Night: 12 March), the world première of Zoe Cooper's Out of Water (Press Night: 1 May) directed by Guy Jones, and Artistic Director Paul Miller's production of Terence Rattigan's While the Sun Shines (Press Night: 11 June).
