The Treatment

The Treatment, The Almeida Theatre

Martin Crimp's modern satire is set in a film studio in New York and centres on a young woman in an industry, where people are mere commodities and the business' driving factor is to sell sex and make money. Our leading lady finds out that it is a dangerous game, exploiting the rights to your life as a commodity.
