LimehouseA thrilling new drama by Steve Waters, Limehouse fictionalises a power struggle at the heart of British politics in 1981 when one Sunday morning four prominent Labour politicians gather in Limehouse, east London. Bill Rodgers, Shirley Williams, Roy Jenkins and David Owens are desperate to find a political alternative. Should they split their party and divide their loyalties, risking the betrayal of everything they believe in as a result? Would they be starting afresh or destroying the tradition that nurtured them? Staged at the Donmar Warehouse, this new play takes audiences behind closed doors to imagine the personal conflicts behind the making of political history.

 

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.
