Morgan Lloyd Malcom's The Wasp to play Jermyn Street Theatre
The play is to be revived in London following a critically acclaimed production in 2015 at the Hampstead Theatre and Trafalgar Studios
The Wasp is to return to the London stage in a new production directed by Anna Simpson. Playing the Jermyn Street Theatre for 2 weeks from 31st July, the production is produced by the venue in association with Two Shillings and Sixpence.
The Wasp is an electric thriller about childhood experiences and how they can impact the rest of our lives. Are we ever able to fully overcome scars from our past? Asking the important questions of why people hurt other people, and if we can ever rise above and forgive the wrongdoings we have endured, The Wasp focuses on Heather and Carla who haven’t seen each other since school. Their lives seem to have taken very different paths yet those paths suddenly cross in a café. This chance meeting takes a turn from awkward conversation to unexpected proposition that will have an even bigger impact on their lives than the events of the past.
Anna Simpson directs Lisa Gorgin and Selina Giles as Heather and Carla in a production designed by Mike Leopold.
The Wasp officially opens at the Jermyn Street Theatre on 1st August 2017.
