Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal for the UK Premiere of SUZY STORCK at Gate Theatre

In her first season as Artistic Director of the Gate Theatre, Ellen McDougall presents Suzy Storck, directed by celebrated French director Jean-Pierre Baro, in his debut UK production. Baro, one of the most exciting new artists in French theatre, directs Kate Duchene (Madam Storck), Caoilfhionn Dunne (Suzy Storck), Jonah Russell (Hans Vasilly Kruez) and Theo Solomon (Chorus). Suzy Storck opens on 31 October, with previews from 26 October and runs until 18 November. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

Heavy heat. Just before the storm. An evening when the setting sun never actually sets.

Another unbearably hot evening, 8.54pm. Suzy Storck sits by the window, waiting for her husband to come home. Upstairs she can hear her childrena, yelling and clamouring at their bedroom door. She's locked them in.

Suzy realises for the first time she never chose any of this. She wonders how she ended up here. She imagines what escape might feel like. After tonight, she might never find her way out.

The Gate Theatre presents the UK premiere of this haunting new play by Magali Mougel, directed by Jean-Pierre Baro. Magali Mougel's plays include, Erwin Motor, devotion, La Dernière Battue, Léda, le sourire en bannière, Penthy Sûr La Bande, Je Ne Peux Plus, Guérillères Ordinaires, Elle Pas Princesse Lui Pas Héros, Poudre Noire, Anticorps and La Nuit Où Le Jour S'est Levé - co-written with Sylvain Levey and Catherine Verlaguet. Later this year, her play The Lulu Projekt will run at Editions Espaces 34 and it has been selected for Le Prix Godot 2017 Des Lycéens.
