Actress Janie Dee is set to star in the world premiere of Torben Betts’s new play Monogamy, which will run at London’s Park Theatre after a short UK tour. The play is about Caroline Mortimer (Dee), a famous television chef who seems to have everything going for her: loving husband, good kids and a luxurious home in Highgate. But she is forced to face living a private life in the public eye. Monogamy will open in Malvern in May before running in Guildford and York, and then opening at the Park Theatre on 6th June.
Monogamy means sharing your life with one person, but what if you shared your kitchen with 5.6 million?
Caroline Mortimer, the nation’s favourite TV cook, has it all - a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy.
But beneath the immaculate furnishings, studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras - Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye. What happens when the cameras turn off and the truth comes out?
A searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy from one of the UK’s most exciting playwrights, Torben Betts (Muswell Hill, Park Theatre).
