production information

★★★★ The Guardian, Time Out, The Times, The Observer, The Sunday Times, The Stage, Evening Standard, The Independent 

New York. A film studio.  A young woman has an urgent story to tell.

But here, people are products, movies are money and sex sells. And the rights to your life can be a dangerous commodity to exploit.

Martin Crimp’s contemporary satire is directed by Lyndsey Turner, who returns to the Almeida following her award-winning production of Chimerica.
