The Mistress ContractAbi Morgan, the writer responsible for films The Iron Lady and Shame, and television dramas including The Hour, makes her debut at the Royal Court Theatre with The Mistress Contract, a play based on 40 years of transcripts charting a real-life extramarital affair. An American couple meet at university, fall out of touch, then reacquaint 20 years later and enter into a contract. The woman will provide sex and "mistress services" in return for a house where she would live, read, and record all their conversations. The play charts the decades of intellectual exchange between the pair who also shared a love of culture, art, literature and books, and whose contract continues into their old age. Recording their conversations, according to the Royal Court's artistic director, Vicky Featherstone, who directs, was also about "trying to keep hold of something; persuading yourself that something is not transient".

 

About Royal Court Theatre

Dedicated to putting on new work and discovering new voices, the Royal Court Theatre was seen as 'the most important theatre in Europe' by no less an authority than The New York Times. In 1956 it staged John Osborne's Look Back in Anger - a landmark in modern British drama - and the Sloane Square theatre has continued to produce work of an equally high standard, with numerous productions making a successful transition to the West End.
