RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From West End

NOMINEE! 1983 Tony Award for Best Play
Originally produced in London by the National Theatre and later on Broadway, this cinematic drama by one of England's most celebrated contemporary playwrights reaped praise when produced by Joseph Papp and starring Kate Nelligan. Post war history is seen through the life and loves of a former French Resistance fighter; Susan Traherne, now disaffected and cynical, marries a conventional career diplomat and proceeds to wreck both their lives. Later filmed with Meryl Streep in the role of Susan.

REVIEWS

"An explosive theatrical vision of a world that was won and lost during and after World War II." - The New York Times

"Plenty has a near epic resonance and Susan Traherne must be the most extensive woman's role in the contemporary English language theatre...crackles with a passionate intelligence..." - Newsweek


Plenty premiered at the Lyttleton Theatre in London in April 1978 under the direction of David Hare.
