The Playground Studio and KPS Productions will present the world premiere of Go See by Norman Mailer's widow, Norris Church Mailer, at the King's Head Theatre in Islington, north London, from 12 to 29 November 2014, with an official opening on 14 November 2014.
The drama is described as "an exploration of personal, cultural and sexual identity in a big city". Directed by Sondra Lee, the cast will include Peter Tate whose previous work includes leading roles at The National Theatre, The Almeida and The Actors’ Studio NYC, alongside New Yorker Lauren Fox whose theatre credits include 'Hill Billy Women' at The Arc Light Theatre and 'Heathens' at Theatre for A New City.
Go See follows David/Paul and Marie/Michelle, two lost souls hiding behind masks of self-deception and manufactured identities. As the pair meet through work, a difficult journey begins as they gradually get to know each other - creating personas, advancing and retreating, concealing and revealing, until ultimately a version of the truth is reached and some kind of intimacy born.
The wife of the US literary giant, Norman Mailer, Norris Church Mailer was a respected writer in her own right publishing two novels, 'Windchill Summer' (2000) and 'Cheap Diamonds' (2007) along with a memoir about their years together, 'A Ticket to the Circus' (2010).
