SplendourArtistic director of the Donmar is celebrating strong and interesting women with her 2015 theatre programme. The second half of the year kicks off with Splendour, Abi Morgan's play about four women who are awaiting the arrival of the dictator on the day that the revolution starts against him. In an opulent drawing room a photojournalist awaits his return to take his portrait, the dictator's wife and her best friend, as well as an interpreter, all wait with her, tapping fingers and sipping vodka. Harbouring secrets and suspicions, all four are in danger and this could be a long wait.

About The Donmar Warehouse

Housed in an impressive red-brick industrial building - at various times a brewery, a banana warehouse and a film studio - this tiny repertory theatre is one of the great success stories of the 1990s. Created as a studio space for the RSC in 1977, it became a shabby but popular fringe theatre in the 1980s, a testing ground for producers with big ideas but little money.
