Written by Richard Greenberg - best known for his 2003 Tony Award-winning Take Me Out and for Three Days of Rain, which enjoyed an acclaimed West End run in 2009 ? The American Plan comes to the St. James Theatre this July. Set in the Catskill Mountains and directed by David Grindley, the play tells the story of Lili Adler, a beautiful and fragile daughter of a wealthy German-Jewish refugee. Lily meets a handsome young stranger and finds herself falling in love but, once her overbearing mother hears of it, all may be threatened.

Built on the site of the former Westminster Theatre in Victoria , the venue will include a state-of-the-art 312 seat theatre, a studio performance space, broadcast TV facilities and a bar and brasserie designed by architect Tim Foster (also responsible for redevelopment projects at the Polka Children's Theatre , Gate Theatre and Tricycle Theatre and cinema).
