Making war is a dirty business. So is making peace.
Two countries are locked in battle over a strip of land when a fragile ceasefire provides a chance for peace. Over the negotiating table, cynical diplomats, idealistic peacemakers and meddling mediators try to navigate a perilous path to agreement as the threat of continued conflict looms ever larger.
Helmed by the nation’s much-loved presenter Clive Anderson, and written by experienced diplomat Daniel Taub (former ambassador and Middle East peace negotiator) with comedy writer/producer Dan Patterson (Mock the Week, Whose Line is it Anyway, The Duck House), Winner’s Curse is a brand-new show that combines humour and audience interaction to take you behind the scenes of a high stakes international peace talk.
Park Theatre, Clifton Terrace, Finsbury Park
Park Theatre is the brainchild of Artistic Director, Jez Bond, and Creative Director, Melli Bond, who – following a six year London-wide search for a building – discovered a vacant office block next to Finsbury Park station in 2010. Garnering support from the theatre community at large – including luminaries such as Ian McKellen and Alan Rickman, the press and, importantly, local residents – they set out to raise the necessary funds to convert the tired concrete building into a thriving new theatre and beacon for the community. At a cost of just £2.6 million, the building, designed by David Hughes Architects, opened in May 2013 to rave reviews from the critics.
Nearest Tube station is Finsbury Park (Station Place Exit). Exit left out of Station Place then left and under the bridge. Then second left onto Morris Place, Park Theatre is at the end.
