VersaillesFrancesca Annis stars in the world premiere of a new play written and directed by Peter Gill for the Donmar Warehouse. The Great War has ended but much is at stake as international delegates assemble in Paris to draw up the document they hope will cement peace. The play examines the Treaty of Versailles through the lives of a middle class family in Kent whose son, Leonard, is among the British delegation, and reflects on how decisions made then defined Europe and the Middle East in ways that would shape the century and which still resonate 100 years later. The cast includes Barbara Flynn, Simon Williams, Gwilym Lee and Helen Bradbury.

 

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.
